Need some opinions about a teacher's gift.

Part of the teacher's gift is going to be an ornament that says Mrs. J_______ and Ms. R______'s Kindergarten class 2010-2011. And then it will have all the kid's names on it. My question is, for the children's names, should I just do first name or should I do first name and last initial? None of the children have the same name.

  • First names only, that's what the teachers call them and like you said, none of the children have the same name!

  • First name and initial, so they can remember them easily.

  • I think Id go with first name only, last initial really doesnt matter if no one has the same first name, boy did you luck out!

  • First names - and ornaments is a great idea

  • just last names, there's no point going out since none of the kids have the same names and each teacher will remember each child without the last names.

  • Is it a public school or Christian based school and are both teacher's christian?

    I think it is a bad idea. A non-religiousholiday gift is in better taste.  I have seen some VERY cute ideas.  Have each child put a thumb print on a serving platter and decorate.  Or I have seen each kid make a very cute shrinky dink, put holes prior to baking, then decorate a tin bucket with them.  It is GREAT for putting drinks and ice into for a party.  There are many other choice that I think would be more appropriate.
