Here’s a quick and inexpensive way to create Back-to-School Pins for your students to wear. You will need bar pin backs, stickers (I usually base my sticker choice around our current class theme or class mascot) and plain stencil sheets (sold at Wal-Mart and craft stores).
Adhere the stickers to the stencil sheets and then cut out your now sturdy stickers. Next, use a glue gun to place a pin on the back of each sticker.
Voila! You’ll have a unique “welcome to school” surprise and make quite a fashion statement too (especially if you buy trademark character stickers)! You can produce additional sticker pins during the year to recognize student achievements, stimulate interest in units of study and celebrate student birthdays.
