I really like to find ways to use the computer to make special items for my students. I use custom created labels for many different uses. For example, I make pencil reward toppers. I print phrases such as, '100 on Math Test', 'Happy Birthday' and 'Awesome Reader'. I fold them in half around the pencil to make a flag. This turns an ordinary yellow pencil into an extra special pencil. I also make grade scales on labels and students stick them in their folders or notebooks to use all year. I make book labels that say, 'Please return this book to Mrs. C' or 'This book was donated by Susie Smith'. For the first day of school, I make stickers that say, Welcome to the Third Grade!
