Bursting With Excitement: Monday Made It

Today I start teaching summer school.  I'm actually pretty jazzed about it.  Not only is it a little extra cash right around the time we close on our house, it's also being a held at the very same elementary school I attended as a little girl. :)  Plus it's for incoming fourth graders, win win.  After a year in second, I need to get used to big kids again! 

I'm also super excited because it's Monday Made It! :)

Since back to school is quickly approaching, I started getting my typical back to school activities ready.  I always like to have a little something on my students' desk at open house.  This year, my partner teacher and I plan on giving my students a little bag filled with Starbursts!  You can see an example of the completed bags below. :) 

Over the weekend, I made my bag topper for my Starburst bags.  I plan on using 3" x 4" bags from Wilton.  You can find similar ones {here}

I have created an edible Powerpoint for you to use so that you can type in your name and your student's names, if you so desire. 

I also added two additional templates this year. One for departmentalized/team teachers and one that is a little more generic since there can be so much movement/transition of students before the beginning of the school year.  

If you want to create your own "Bursting With Excitement" bag topper for your own students this year, you can download the Powerpoint Template for free at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.  

You can check out these bag toppers by clicking {here} or on any of the images in this post. 

Thanks, Tara again for hosting this fun party! 


  1. Very cute! I like the colors you used.
    When my husband and I were looking for houses a few years ago, I was SO hoping to find it and get all of the paperwork done during the summer. No such luck. We did find a house, but it took forever for the paperwork. We didn't end up closing until mid-September. As much as I didn't want to move during the beginning of the school year, it was a nice escape from the stresses of breaking in a new crop of kids.
    Good Luck!

  2. You are ahead of the game! The toppers are precious. Thank you for sharing.
