First Day Poem from Teacher to Parent

Lots of us have made the popular "First Day" frames that we see on Pinterest. I made mine last year when I began to teach kindergarten for the first time. 
I thought it fitting to get my husband to take my picture on my first day of kindergarten in 2013!
When I took the children's pictures last year, I printed them out and wrote a note to each set of parents and  put the picture of their child in the note. The parents loved it!
 Well, this year I decided to write a little poem that I could copy, print, and glue on each picture. Then, I thought it would be nice to buy an inexpensive clear acrylic frame to put it in and place in a small colored bag as a gift to the parents. They turned out so cute that I had to make the poem with the design border as a freebie. 
If you click the top picture, you can download this freebie. The poem is on 5 different colored chevron borders. There is a poem for each gender. I wish you a wonderful 2014-15 school year!
