Several years ago, I found the CUTEST stuffed frog at an airport gift shop. (You can purchase your own frog HERE.) I knew that I wanted to use it as my class "weekend friend"! I found many useful sample letters and ideas online. I created my letter based on a "Boris the Bear" example I had found, but cannot find the original link anywhere. If you know who deserves the credit for this, please let me know! This was before blogging, TpT, and Pinterest became popular, so it's been tough to hunt down the source. I created a handful of items to go along with my frog, but have just updated and condensed everything into one file to share! Here it is!
