Thank you Volunteers - FREEBIE

Through the years, I have been fortunate to have some really amazing parent and grandparent volunteers.  I felt like my students benefitted in so many different ways from all of them.  At the end of the year, I knew I wanted to do something to thank them but what makes the best gift for a volunteer?  Through trial and error, I think I found the answer.  Hands down the favorite of my volunteers seemed to be the class book.  I have done different versions but the books worked the same way.  During journal time I have my students each write a page about the volunteer.  The students can write about a memory, how the volunteer helped our class or him/her personally.  You will be pleasantly surprised about what your students will write about your helpers.  I made a volunteer class book that is FREE for a short time.  There are two different versions.

This is the front cover of version #1.

This is the primary writing page.

This is the intermediate writing page.

For the front cover of the 2nd version, print off the letters above.  Each letter is on one 8 1/2 X 11 page.  To personalize it, let your students decorate the letters.  You are going to take a picture of your class and have 8 of your students hold the letters that say "thank you".  Glue the picture to the front cover page below:

This is the intermediate writing page.
