Students glued a strip inside the card and wrote the teacher's name and signed their own name. It was a great chance for them to add a special note or drawing too!
Here is the 'Thanks to You.....We're Smart Cookies' printable.
Here is the 'Taco 'bout a great teacher' printable.
For the cookie cards, students cut the corners of a 4X4 square to make it round. For the taco, we used a 4X6 yellow rectangle and trimmed off only the top two corners. We colored these cards using crayola color sticks, but crayons or markers would've been great too. I liked the color sticks because they were not messy and we had a chance to use 'colored pencils' without all the sharpening!
A few of my older students drew cookies with milk and some even drew a smart looking cookie monster with glasses.
