Last year's Blue's school was helpful in reminding us about Teacher Appreciation Week and giving us ideas for each day. If I'm remembering correctly the days went something like this:
Snack Day (send in a snack treat for teacher)
Supplies Day (stock those supply cabinets for teacher!)
Note or picture from kid
Present of your choice (I think. This was a whole year ago after all.)
Our three kiddos have four teachers (Toby has two) and that adds up (not just money but time for the preparation!) plus we send supplies all the time, so! This year our week is going to look more like this:
Monday - notes/art from kiddos
Wednesday - flowers
Friday - present in the form of a $25 Olive Garden gift card. I know, that's $100 right there, BUT I use credit card points, so it doesn't feel like I'm spending an extra $100. Sure, we won't be gifting ourselves cash back like we usually do, but that's ok because we appreciate our teachers!
For Blue's card, which we made this morning before school, we did a little Q and A that I typed up and put in the card. Hopefully his teacher will enjoy his answers!
(Teacher name)'s favorite thing to says is... (Blue answered, "Sit down," I hope his teacher is amused!)
What do you think (teacher name) likes to do after school?
What the best thing (teacher name) has read to you?
What is (teacher name)'s favorite food?
What is something (teacher name) has taught you?
(Teacher name) is great because...
(Teacher name), thank you for...
That's how we're observing Teacher Appreciate Week this year - how about you?
