5 ways to #ThankATeacher for Teacher Appreciation Week
Have you ever had a teacher that inspired you? Or know one that is making an impact in your child’s life? Perhaps it was an educator that went the extra mile to help you or your child achieve more. Teachers do an amazing job every day to encourage their students. We're proud to support those magnificent mentors who care so much about their students’ education and future. Join us in acknowledging those who teach! Here are 5 simple ways for you and your kids to thank a teacher:
1. Write a thank-you note.Express your thanks with a thoughtful note or drawing.
2. Give a gift.
Flowers, balloons, and gift cards are always a nice touch. Or think outside the box. How about a tote bag? It’s a handy way for carrying books and papers! You can even fill it up with supplies from the dollar store.
How about a tasty treat? Bake up an extra-large chocolate chip cookie or decorate a delicious cupcake. No time? No problem. Pick something up from your local bakery. No one will know! It’s the sweetness that counts.
3. Use DonorsChoose.org.
Give to a teacher through DonorsChoose.org, a crowdfunding site that makes it easy for teachers to post project requests for new school supplies. DonorsChoose.org makes it easy for individuals to donate to a project of their choice. Even if a teacher doesn’t have a project currently listed, you can make a donation for future classroom projects, or purchase a gift card for your teacher!
If your teacher has never posted a project before, you can help them set one up by visiting: www.donorschoose.org/teachers. This is a great way for them to receive classroom supplies including newer technology, educational games and tools, or even funds for field trips.
4. Get creative.
Create a bookmark and put it in a book you want to share. We also love this centerpiece idea:
