for their teacher...

a little
first day of school butter 'em up gift!
i like  jumbo calculators.
so i picked this one up for $2.50 in the target dollar section.
later that day this cheesy gift idea came to my mind.
(listen people. i can't help that cheese is always on my mind!)

warning... and funny story about this calculator. it's numbers are all wacky. when i push the 1 a 2 comes up. when i push the 4 a 5 comes up. that could make addition and multiplication a little difficult. SO... try out all the buttons before you buy one. haha. i did see some other fun colored calculators at walmart in their school section. they just weren't jumbo.

"my calculations" tags comes in green + blue.
get your calculations sheet here.

guess what? we are also over at the great blog how does she?  today sharing another super fun
first day of school butter em up idea!!  Go check it out!

  9. This is so cute! There are many teachers in our family, and I think they would all love this! Actually, anything other than a mug (they could fill a kitchen cupboard with all they've received)will be appreciated:)
    Love the fortune cookies too!

  10. I think it's a cute idea...however as a teacher I'm not sure what i would do with it. It would probably end up in my treasure box at some point or would be given away. But it's really cute...

  13. It is a cute sheet but I cannot download it. I tried 3 times and got this message each time:
    "The file is damaged and could not be repaired."
