VA is for Bloggers - Southern Hospitality Freebie Blog Hop

Hi everyone! It is a very exciting day - I'm joining in on my very first blog hop! A lovely group of Virginia bloggers would like to help usher in the new school year by extending a bit of southern hospitality. You can follow along the blog hop to visit 20+ Virginia teacher blogs for terrific teaching tips and fun freebies to help get your new school year off to a great start.

I've created a great Back to School freebie for grades PreK-6. Just print the tag, punch two holes, slide it on a glow bracelet, and let the fun begin! 

I plan on giving these out to the kids who come for Open House a few days before school starts. I think it'll be a great way to get them excited about coming back to school and create some buzz about the new year. 

These were actually tested by a 4th grader and 1st grader and were deemed "cool", so that's a go in my book! The best part about these: the Dollar Tree sells packs of 5 and sometimes 7 glow bracelets! That makes this a very low cost B2S treat! 

Just click on the picture below to download the freebie! It contains tags for grades PreK-6, so just print what you need. I printed mine on neon colored cardstock to match the bracelets. 

Head on over to Teach Love for the next stop in the hop! 


  1. This is adorable and definitely a PERFECT little treat for Open House. I agree that the kiddos need a little boost to get excited about going back to school.. just like we do sometimes!

    Target usually also has glow sticks in packs of 15 for around $2!! I have hoarded them in my classroom closet so I'm good to go for this goodie!
