Tried it Tuesday - File Folder Thank You Notes

This is my last week of school and so I wanted the kids to make
thank you notes for a few special people in the school.
Check out what we made in my...
My initial thought was for the kids to make cards on the computer.
But then, I went on Pinterest and found this awesome idea.

I took a file folder and folded the two flaps into the center.
We decorated the outside, hole punched and added some ribbon.
Then each student had to write a short thank you note on a Post-It.
They were added in an organized way and this is how it looked.
I love this idea because all the kids get to add a note and it looks nice.
We made these for the room moms, custodians, secretaries and lunchroom helpers.
Besides a thank you note, how else could this idea be used?


  1. This is such a creative idea where you put the post-its inside the folder! I'm sure the people receiving the thank you's are so grateful!
