Back to school is near! We are gearing up around our house, albeit mine are just in prek and there isn’t a ton to do thankfully as of yet…..we do have new nap mats, lunch boxes and stainless steel bento inserts and my littlest guy has his very own backpack.
Growing up with a teacher as a mother, I certainly know how much work goes into preparing a classroom. Whether creating lesson plans, decorating bulletin boards, shopping for supplies or preparing activities for their students, teachers are already hard at work around our country.
So, we love to give a small token of gratitude (and hopefully a smile) to each of our new teachers on the 1st day back. We loved these ruler pencils from Oriental Trading and created these fun “School Rules! Happy 1st Day” pencil tag toppers to coordinate.
To assemble, simple download and print our FREE back to school printable below, trim the tags using a paper cutter or scissors, punch a hole in either end of the tag and thread the pencil through the back. Voila!
While there are SO many ideas out there for back to school teacher gifts, we love something simple and practical….and these ruler pencils measure up (HA!).
Happy Back to School!
