Ideas for Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week is a great opportunity to show your gratitude and appreciation to the teachers who have made a positive impact on your child's life.

Here are some ideas for Teacher Appreciation Week:

  1. Have all of the students fill out an "All About My Teacher" printable. Collect them all from the students in the class, and then laminate them and bind them together to give to the teacher.  You can find a FREE digital download here
  2. Pick a day where each student brings in one flower for the teacher. Make sure to have one student bring in a vase for the teacher to put all of their flowers in to showcase on their desk. 
  3. Give a small gift: A thoughtful gift can go a long way in showing your appreciation. Consider giving your teacher a small plant, a gift card to a local coffee shop or bookstore, or a box of their favorite treats.
  4. Plan a classroom celebration: Plan a special celebration in honor of your teacher. You could bring in snacks, decorate the classroom,  give them any gifts you got and present them with the "All About My Teacher" printables you put together. You can even plan a few simple games to play like charades, limbo or sombrero toss
  5. Get parents involved: Encourage your parents to get involved in Teacher Appreciation Week.   Send an email during the week to remind them to send a note or small gift to the teacher and possibly contribute to the party planned. Here is a sample letter to the parents you can send out to ask for for donations for the activities you have planned for the week. 
  6. Spread some social media love: Take to social media to share a positive post about your teacher. Tag them in the post and let the world know how much you appreciate them ❤️. 

Remember, it's not about the size or cost of the gift or gesture, but rather the sentiment behind it that matters most. Any small act of appreciation can go a long way in making a teacher feel valued and recognized.
