As I promised, today's post is MUCH easier.
The poem for today reads:
The 2nd Day of Christmas
Your students are busy like hens
You can correct their papers
with these two red pens
Like I mentioned before, the original post had 2 red sharpies as the gift with a slightly different poem. To get 2 red sharpies, I would either have to buy a dozen for $10 or 2 multi-color packs for $6/each. Also, I just didn't think that teachers would get as much use out of 2 red Sharpies, as they would 2 red regular pens. I did purchase a 'nice' red pen pack (with an ergonomic comfort grip) by Zebra. It was a pack of 7, so I have 3 left over for me (with 2 for each of my girl's teachers).
I kept it simple, but nice. I took curling ribbon and tied first a red ribbon around both pens and slid it up the shafts, just under the clip. Then, I tied a white curling ribbon the same way and slid it next to the red ribbon. I then wrapped the red and then white around the 2 pens to create a candy cane effect. Last, I added a bunch of curling ribbon and curled it. Adding the tag to the mix.
And, you are done!
Hope you are enjoying these. Be back for tomorrow's Day 3
