Teacher Appreciation Ideas

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 2nd – May 6th!

When I was teaching 2nd grade, I loved receiving little ‘happies’ from my students that expressed their excitement about what we did in our classroom.  It gave me just the encouragement I needed to keep on keeping on!

I hope you’ll take a look at some of these fabulous ideas and then bring a little joy to your Happy Buddy’s teacher next week!

Then there’s this glowing brilliance of an idea!  Sunglasses for the teacher (perfect for summer) and a FREE printable tag that says Matthew 5:16 – In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

But, you know, the greatest gift I ever received while teaching was a heartfelt note from a parent or student.  I have saved and treasured every one!  So break out the stationary and have a Thank You Note writing party!

Your words will be a blessing!

Happy Teacher Appreciate-ing! :-)

  1. This is awesome! I don’t have kids. I’m not a teacher, but I have co-workers that I’d love to encourage from a project that we’re on.

    I also have neighbors and friends…no reason that this wouldn’t work for them.
