This article about the most memorable gift you have received from a student is both sweet and funny. I don't know if I posted the link correctly - hope it works.

The link works!

I've gotten some interesting ones. The exoskeleton from a pet tarantula, a chunk of honeycomb (complete with honey and dead bees), a bag of exoskeletons of some sort of cicada in Afghanistan (the dad brought it back from a tour of duty), and several hummingbird nests. I've kept all of those and use them for my Show-n-Tell items every year.


This year, a little girl gave me a few pieces of a broken candy cane and a very stale marshmallow. With 5 year olds, it often is the thought that counts!

My favorite was a little Santa picture frame with 3x5 in the middle (size). The note from my second grader said, "Mrs.S, I bought you this cause I know you love math.)

The penny story from KY was really sweet.

I used to save gifts that were cute or meaningful until last summer.
My upstairs shelves ( lots of shelves) were lined with cute trinkets and memories after almost 30 yrs of teaching.
I started dusting last summer and many had collected a lot of dust.
This thought / Q came to me about if something happened to me, would those gifts mean anything to my kids? ( Or junk they'd just pitch...)
1st I told myself if I did not remember who gave it to me, to toss it. I have a pretty good memory!
I just sucked it up and threw 99% of it away. I figured I have the memory of the sweet kids in my heart anyways.
If you want to see some of the craziest gifts PTers have gotten, I found an old post that made me laugh.
