gives for teachers

Teacher survival kit

1. Mounds: for the mounds of stuff you teach
2. crayon: to color your day
3. peanut: to get a little nutty
4. band-aid: for when things get a little rough
5. marbles: to replace thouse you might lose from time to time
6. sponge: to soak up the overflow, when your brain is too full
7. puzzle piece: without you, things wouldn't be complete
8. life saver: for when you've had one of those days
9. hugs and kisses: to make everything all worthwhile

a poem to go with it if you want it
A poem - to share the gift of words.

Paint their minds and guide their thoughts
share their achievements and advise their faults
Inspire a love of knowledge and truth
as you light the path which leads our youth
For our future brightens with each lesson you teach
each smile you lengthen each goal you help reach
For the dawn of each poet, each phiolosopher and king
begins with a teacher and the wisdom they bring.
~Written by Kevin William Huff~

another survival kit for teachers;
Teacher's Emergency Kit
Take as needed
GRADING PILL..................RED

The Brown pill may be doubled!

a poem to give

The Little Things

Too often we don't realize
what we have until it is gone;
Too often we wait too late to say
"I'm sorry - I was wrong."

Sometimes it seems we hurt the ones
we hold dearest to our hearts;
And we allow foolish things
to tear our lives apart.

Far too many times we let
unimportant things into our minds;
And then it's usually too late
to see what made us blind.

So be sure that you let people know
how much they mean to you;
Take that time to say the words
before your time is through.

Thanks for posting these bar_bar!

National Teachers Day is May 4th so Im on the lookout for a homemade gift for my son's teacher.

I was going to look for a "teacher's survival kit". This one sounds really cute!


Other ideas for teachers gifts

Buy a small plant. Affix a laminated copy of your childs picture to the plant marker ( could also add a poem underneath it) This will have to be reproduced to a small size)

Next, buy a terra cotta pot for the plant to go into. On the pot, write

"Thank You for helping me to grow"

I love this idea!!

Another homemade idea

On a sheet of paper ( colored or white) have your child print his/her handprints. Across the top of the paper you will print

Thank you for touching my heart----then her name and the date

This can also be done as a class project. Have all of the children paint their handprints onto a sheet of paper that has been cut to poster size. You can use all different colors for the prints, then each child can personalize their prints with their names. Type the saying above the top of the poster. Frame it in a poster frame!!
