I always like to find meaningful ways to honor my kids’ teachers at the end of the year.
They are worth it.
**This idea comes from the lovely LeAna at A Small Snippet.**
I drew up a simple questionnaire (FREE Printable at bottom of post), printed them, placed them in large manila envelopes, and sent them home to all of the parents of the students in Happy Buddy’s class asking if they could fill it out with their kids as well as add a small photo of their child before returning it.
The responses we got were so adorable!
I am so proud that my son’s fondest moment from class this year involved him using potty words (which, if you’re wondering, are ‘poop’, and ‘butt’) with a friend on the carpet.
He is clearly very serious about his education.
As a teacher myself, getting a keepsake like this is one of the best parts about being an educator! You get a little peek into the way God used you in your student’s hearts that year.
A very rewarding feeling, indeed.
Once everyone returned their filled out forms, I slipped them into some sheet protectors, created a collage of photos on PicMonkey for the cover design, and put everything into a binder.
I hope that Happy Buddy’s teachers will enjoy looking back through this book in the years to come.
And maybe YOUR child’s teachers will enjoy it too!

I totally used this idea for the twins teacher. It was a grand slam!!! Everyone enjoyed doing it and the result is a tear jerker. Thank you for still being a light in our lives even though you are a neighbor that lives a little farther away now. ?
Thank you so much for making this end of the year project available. It is a great idea.
