I found this idea for thank you notes and class stationery when I was cleaning out some files. "Mrs. Young" asked each child to draw their picture with a black pen. She reduced the size and did a little cut and paste magic to get them on half a sheet of paper. On the other half it says, “Created especially for YOU by Mrs. Young’s Kindergarten Class of 20--.”  Here's the open version as well as what it looks like folded into a card.
Hint! These could be run off on cardstock, seasonal colors, or plain white paper.

Here's another idea for class stationery. Let the children draw their picture and write their name in one of the squares. Run off many, many copies so you can put them in the class writing center for the children to use.
I loved this thank you note I received from the children at the Amahoro School in Rwanda.  Their thumbprints are flowers and it says "Thank you for helping us bloom and grow." Something similar to this could also be used to make class stationery and notes.

You know, everybody wants to be appreciated, and these notes would be treasured by the recipients.  "Thumb" body thanks you for reading my blog today!!!
