So, my partner teacher texted me this summer about taking a silly sunglasses picture to mail to our prospective students before we met them this year. I was really not feeling it (I am often a Scrooge), but I'm sort of indebted to my partner teacher for life, so I agreed, and we had a silly photo sesh at my house complete with over-sized sunglasses.
I edited the picture with my favorite photo editing apps - PhotoToaster and Word Swag.
My partner teacher then took the image to CVS and worked her postcard-making magic. She snail-mailed a copy to each of our 41 students.

Some other "bright" ideas for the beginning of the year are as follows:
1) First Day Highlighter Gift by The Tom Cat Studio.
2) If you find some silly sunglasses for your photo shoot, tack them onto your bulletin board afterwards for a cute beginning-of-the-year display. That's what my partner teacher did, and of course I forgot to take a picture before she changed it up. Here's an adorable display to consider by The Techy Teacher.
So, here's hoping your year is SUPER BRIGHT, too! Hugs and kisses from FlapJack!
