hippo birthday

I made a couple cards with this week's cps sketch. I'm working on using up my stash and some wishes from SCS (I have a whole shoebox full of them).

I know that this school year is almost over, but I'm already thinking about next year. I have so many new ideas and plans. My notebook is full of lists and things I want to change. Another way to encourage me to use my stash is to give each of my students a card from me on their birthday. I usually let them pick a gift from my birthday box, but I thought it would be neat to set a card on their desk too. Aren't these perfect for little second graders?

This was a fun sketch. Make sure to check out the fun samples on the CPS blog. Thanks for stopping by!
