Want something quick and easy to welcome students back at the beginning of a new school year? Check out the free download of these colorful pencil toppers. One side has a cute poem, and the other side says, “WELCOME BACK!”
These toppers can be printed on 1″ X 4″ labels and wrapped around the pencil. Or, do what I did. Use plain paper, cut out the rectangles, and then use clear tape to keep the pencil topper in place.
I found this versatile idea on Pinterest. This same design could be used to welcome students back to school after New Year’s Day. Or, using PowerPoint you could create your own design and personalize the message to include your name– Welcome Back to Mrs. Smith’s Class!
Has anyone else made pencil toppers? I’d love to see your designs!
