First day glitter poem???

Help please, I saw a post last year about using glitter or confetti and a poem/letter the night before a child's first day of school. The parent would read it with them I believe. Can't remember the site or real details.

I love this tradition. Someone craftier than me designed this and shared it years ago. Thank you very much!

Love it! Do you put the confetti on bags? The OP shared a note that told parents what to do.

I put the confetti in a little snack size bag with the note attached. The kids love it.

Confetti Letter

I do not have a note that explains things, sorry. We have an ice cream social the Thursday evening before school starts. The students come with their parents to find out whose class they will be in for the upcoming year. I give the letter to parents then and tell them to give it to their child the night before school starts.

I do put the glitter in a snack size baggie and fold it into the letter before I place it in an envelope. I then write on the envelope, "Open the night before school starts." The baggie helps them keep from making a mess, hopefully.

I like these poems for the students to leave on their desks. We do an open hour before school starts and I leave them little things like this.

I used something similar, but the food police at our school ended that. Had to find something without any food items.

is a story of a little raccoon's first day of school. Google it. There are many activities (academic and arts/crafts) that can go with it.

My son's kdg teacher did this, but called it "Ready Confetti". He put it under his pillow the night before school started to help him sleep well and be ready for school. Of course DS took it a step further and added other small items he thought would help him: a small model turtle, two half dollars and a paint key. He had a reason for why each one was "lucky". I think I can modify it for 4th grade but our open house is after school starts. Wonder if I can include it in my mailed welcome letter.
