Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up and I thought I’d share some ideas to show your child’s teacher just how much you appreciate them putting up with your child. Seriously, God bless teachers. I have no idea how they handle all those children without losing it on a daily basis. I totally understand why you see teachers at Happy Hour on Fridays. Teachers are definitely special people, especially those (like my Mom) who use their own resources and work countless hours after school to make sure their students succeed.
Here are a few ideas to show your appreciation.
I baked Raspberry Linzer Cookies and packaged them in a jar with a simple ribbon and the tag “I’m one smart cookie thanks to you!”
I got Target gift cards, folded a sheet of paper with the gift card on the inside, cut out a hole so the gift card showed and printed “Thanks for keeping Blake on Target!”
Gift Card Wreath
For Christmas we collected gift cards from the class and my co-room mom turned them into this great wreath. It was a big hit and my son’s teacher really enjoyed it. You could do the same for Teacher Appreciation Week.
Someone on our community Facebook page asked what teachers would really like to receive, gift cards were the #1 response.
Our PTO has all the teachers fill out a favorites sheet and passes it on to the room moms, which in turn pass the info to the other parents. It’s a great idea so you can get your child’s teacher something you know they will really like.
What great gifts have you given your child’s teacher?
