We're Still Here!

UPDATE: We have added an editable version as well!
Just stopping by to let you all know that we are still here! We had our first day with students today and we are so TIRED! We wanted to be sure and share a freebie with you that we send home with our students on the first day of school. After reading The Kissing Hand, by Audrey Penn, our students complete a beginning, middle, and end story retell activity. At the end of the day we send home this award with Chester the raccoon, with each of our first graders. Click HERE to get your copy of our certificate! Be watching this week for some of our classroom pictures! We've finally got our classrooms set up and can't wait to share our pics with you all! Also, beginning in September, we've got some great weekly posts that we will be sharing with you! Have a wonderful week and we wish you all a wonderful start to the school year!

    1. Yes me too please! for Kindergarten

    2. Hi there! It was updated several years ago and there is a kindergarten version :)

  2. I was about to ask the same thing... is there anyway you could share a kindergarten version?

    Thank you :)

  3. Was wondering about your font? what is it called and where did you get it?

  4. I love this! I'll be reading this book to my preschoolers on the first day of school. Could you make a preschool version? Pretty please!

  5. Thanks for sharing such beautiful and useful resource!! I was wondering how you customize each certificate, you mentioned it's editable. I have Acrobat Pro which allows me to convert shared files and edit them, I tried several times after I downloaded your freebie but it's not letting me add text, it tells me its secured. Any help before tomorrow's first day of school for my Pre-K class would be truly appreciated. Thanks!
