Ode to Report Card Comments...

Its report card season again...that wonderful time of year where you have to adequately express in words, letters, and numbers how each child is doing in your class.  If you are anything like us, and your school is still chiseling your report cards onto paper with a black ink pen, you dread the moment you reach the final comment section.  You spend hours decided the best wording and then go back and change it twenty times.  You many even have some amazing white out splotches after you've changed your mind once again.  After looking at our white out covered, black ink stained fingers, we thought to ourselves, "There has to be a better way!"  And so our fellow teacher friends, we present to you an amazing invention called...LABELS!  Bet you didn't see that one coming.  Its so simple, and yet it took us seven long years to think of it!  So this year, instead straining and staining our fingers we decided to type out comments into an 1"x 2 5/8" Avery label template and just print and stick.  This gave us plenty of opportunities to change our minds...and even copy and paste when our awesome comments could apply to more than one student!  So get a cup of coffee and maybe even a piece of pumpkin bread and buckle down and write those comments!
