This is National Teacher Appreciation Week and I couldn’t let it slip by with out offering up some tips on a few simply ways to say Thank You!

-Whether you have a teacher of your own, a teacher for your children or a teacher as a friend, take a few minutes this week to compose a note to them.  Instead of a generic Thank You note, write out an example or a story of a way that you know the teacher has made an impact in your life, your child’s life or the life of their students.

-Have your kids write their own notes to their teachers.  You could start a few sentences for them and ask them to fill in the blanks (ex. I learned ………. from you!, Thank you for…….., ) or they could draw a picture or make a craft for them.

-Work together as a class to present a full bouquet of flowers to your teacher.  Ask each child to bring any flower they choose to class and put them all together in a vase to present a bouquet that represents the students.

    Hi Kimberly-
    Thank you for suggesting these appropriate teacher gifts. I've been a teacher for 13 years, and nothing irritates me more than to receive wooden school bus necklaces or coffee mugs with pictures of apples and pencils on them. You're the best!
