I spend a very unproductive first day of school looking at all the photos my friends share of their kids and smile at all of the well wishes and comments on how much each of them have grown up, and I love every minute of it.
And for a limited time, I have a special treat for teachers too! I know how hard your work and how much of your own money you put into making the first day of school truly special. I have a free downloadable print for you - and all you have to do is ask for it! Send an email to hello (at) polkadotpapercompany.com to request your print. Please use your school or .edu email address and specify your grade level (so you get the right file!). One PDF printable per person, valid through August 31, 2016 only. Not to be shared, or sold, but enjoyed by you and your students on the first day of school! By requesting a file, you will also be added to the Polkadot Paper Company newsletter list, but don't worry, we only send out good stuff!
Happy First Day of School to all of you out there! I hope your year is wonderful!
