Show Chaperones Some Love

I do not like field trips.  I'm just going to come out and say it, because they make me nervous.  I don't like riding on a bus, and I don't like being in charge of 24 kinders when we are off school property.  Last year when I taught fourth grade, we went to the Grand Canyon.  I had a group of boys that I thought would get too close to the edge.  I almost thought about buying those little monkey backpacks so I could keep them on a leash because I was so nervous about them falling.  We all made it back, so I was elated.

Anyway, I could not go on field trips with parent chaperones.  We are going on our annual field trip in two weeks, so it got me thinking about field trips.  I made a handy, dandy field trip packet that includes permission slips, yes/no notes to the chaperones, response activity for the kiddos, checklists, chaperone thank you notes, and more!  Take a look at the pack here.

I decided that I am going to show our chaperones some love by attaching some of the cute notes from my pack to a little goodie.

This is only one of the five options.  Hooray!!  Here is the link to download your freebie.
