What do you do for your child’s teacher to show him/her you appreciate all he/she has done throughout the year?

At my son’s school, we celebrate over the course of a week.  Many parents, like myself, send a small gift to the teacher each day.  Others may choose to send only a few gifts on random days this week, and then some may only send one or two gifts to finish the week.  Whatever you choose, you want the gift to be both memorable and affordable.

Our school has a theme for each day (school supplies on Monday, snacks on Tuesday….).  Other schools may do without a theme.

Here are a few sites I have found to be very helpful:

  1. Dawn,
    We made “You are o’fish’ally the best teacher!” with the gummy Swedish fish, “you were ‘mint’ to be my teacher” with the soft mints, “You’re so ‘pop’ular!” with a bag of microwave popcorn, “Thanks a latte!” with a $5 gift card to Starbucks, and then I took a can of fruit cocktail with the pop top, opened it from the bottom, and put in tootsie rolls. I covered it with glittery scrap book paper and a bow. There was a note on it about opening it up and eating it while hiding in a corner of a dark classroom when you are stressed! It was cute!

    Thanks for your list!
