A Special Surprise
4 Jun, 2014. 7 Comments. A Day In First Grade, First Grade, First Grade Science, Kindergarten Science, Science, Uncategorized. Posted By: Kristen Smith
The other day my students were in for a HUGE surprise. If you haven’t noticed, I simply ADORE Nikki, the illustrator who draws all the fabulous Melonheadz clip art, that I use in all my products.
Well, a few months ago, one of my students and I were discussing an illustration that I had used in one of my centers and he was besides himself excited about the picture. He loved it. I told him that I was friends with Nikki and he GASPED. He could not believe that I was friends with such a talented lady! He verbally pronounced his love of all things Melonheadz and how talented she is. He decided then and there that he wanted to be an illustrator when he grew up so he could be just like her! {So sweet!!!}
So, I just had to pass that story on to Nikki about how much we LOVE her drawings and she was SO SWEET and sent us a care package!
My students squealed with excitement when we got the package!
One of my boys happily read the letter to us!
 
Then another volunteer carefully revealed what was in the box!
Inside we found treats! My students were SOOOO excited to receive the gifts!
 They LOVED the delicious suckers and worked SILENTLY {thank you, Nikki!!} on their math page as they enjoyed the sweet treat!
They especially loved the puppets that were in the gifts and put on numerous puppet shows outside at recess using them!
Nikki, from the bottom of my heart, THANK  YOU for providing my students with such a special treat. They could not stop talking about them! We love, love, love your illustrations! I’m so thankful to be able to call you my friend. XOXOX
