First Day of School "Jitter Glitter" and a Giveaway

I have an idea for you for back to school plus I have joined together again this month to giveaway 3 TpT gift cards for $50 each! (Whoa! How fun is that?!)
 There are so many creative and clever ideas out there to give the kiddos for back to school!  One of my favorites is to give them a little jitter glitter. Have you heard the story First Grade Jitters? So fun! If you are not a first grade teachers, no worries...check out this book, First Day Jitters! I found this poem on pinterest and added it to a card. The kids read the poem and  put it under their pillow the night before the first day of school. I am lucky enough meet my students a couple of days before, so it works out perfectly.
Jitter Glitter is pretty quick and easy! You can choose any kind of glitter, any color card stock...can't go wrong.
First, I print mine out on yellow card stock.
Then, I fold it in half length wise (so it opens like a card.)
Last,  I cut it in half so I have two cards. Finally, I pour a little glitter inside a small plastic bag and staple it inside.
And there you have it...a cute little gift for your students to calm their first day jitters. Click HERE to download it for free.
