This week is Teacher Appreciation Week! As a parent, I am very grateful for the teachers that spend time investing in my children’s lives. I know that they always give 110% everyday! And let’s be honest, spending your day with 25+ children that are not your own is a very special calling. Our teachers are teaching because they LOVE our children, not because it’s just a job. And THAT is why we love and appreciate them!
May is a month filled with lots of things to put your money toward (Mother’s Day, graduation, vacation, etc.) so also having Teacher Appreciation can be a lot, especially for the parent that has multiple children. But giving a meaningful gift doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. Most schools these days have their teachers fill out a favorite things list. As a parent I love that they do this. Sometimes I am able to give a favorite snack and sometimes I am able to do a little more like a gift card to their favorite place to shop. In both situations I know they are getting something that they love no matter the amount I was able to spend. Adding a handwritten letter or card from your child will make the gift even more special.
We thought it would be fun to create a free printable for Teacher Appreciation Week. Sonic and Starbucks is on our teacher’s favorite things list so we figured your teacher’s list is probably similar. We hope this printable makes appreciating your teachers easy and fun.
