For the last 2 years, I've done individual portraits for my students. They absolutely love them! I just use a thin Sharpie and draw in some hair, a smile, a nose, and other little details. Then I fill in with a colored pencil. Of course, I've learned my lesson with teacher gifts and wait until the *perfect* moment to give them out (i.e. I don't pass them out when the rest of them are being passed out and the candy gets all the attention). This is one of those gifts that takes some time, so I feel it deserves a special introduction and I make sure to share each one with the entire class (on our projector) so everyone gets to see everyone's portrait. Anyway, I can't find the template I used to use, so I made a new one with my fancy frames (you can find these in my store) and drew up a quick head and shoulders template. You could also give them to students to draw family members, friends or themselves!

And I made this valentine parent letter class list for Valentine's Day! Note: it is NOT editable--you'll need to write student names.
