I just stand in the candy aisle and as I stare at all the candies, I think of phrases and sentences to use with each candy. This is not the best example or my best effort, yet you get the idea.
This one says:
Dear Ms Werner,
Being your student was MOUNDS of SNICKERS. You have helped me to be a SMARTIE that will help me to get high SKORs NOW AND LATER. Sometimes I am slow as a TURTLE or act like an AIRHEAD, yet you are always an EXTRA SWEETHEART to me. My wish for you is that on PAYDAY, you will be able to go on a shopping SPREE to 5TH AVENUE or even to the MILKY WAY!! I hope that summer is not too much of a FAST BREAK. I hope you get to TAKE 5 minutes peace for yourself. Put your feet up, relax, and say M&M this summer. You have worked hard this year. Love, Katherine
Name the candy and I have most likely used it in some phrase or another over the years for every occasion. Birthdays, Congratulations, Welcome Home, Going Away, Thank You, New Baby, I love you, etc. There are some great ideas from Cindy at Skip To My Lou on my links. Read under her Teacher Appreciation Section. I have used most of the ideas she suggests in one form or another. Her list is great.
Enjoy! Let your imagination go!
