I gave my ds's teacher a little something last year called
"TEACHER SEEDS" I got the poem from CraftSayings.com

Students are like seeds
you plant in the soil.
Each takes patience,
nurturing and toil.

You are a great teacher.
You do your job well,
planting seeds of knowledge.
Just look at us to tell.

Now [plant these seeds
and over each one fuss,
so they'll grow up bright
to remind you of us!

I printed the poem off the sight and attatched it to a packet of Forget Me Nots. The teacher thought it was great. they also have a few other crafty ideas with poems to go with them . One that would go well with the seeds is ANgel Dirt.

Here's an idea that both you and, your son could do. Have him help you make up a double batch of cookies and, buy a nice packet of Thank You notes. Do each of the teachers a package of cookies and, a nice note from you and, your son. It is something that he helped make for each of them. It is something homemade and, not some dust catcher that would get thrown away. And...YUMMY too!!! A homemade goodie is always appreciated!!!

Lightbulb Great Ideas

I love the teacher's poem... will have to share that with my friend.

Dust Catchers- I get to be the recipient of those every year. A co worker's wife is a school teacher, she gives him the dust catchers and he gives them to us as Christmas gifts. She must be a great teacher because he gives us really nice things.

Yes indeed... the poem and seed packet is a big hit here in our office today too. I've shared it with several of the ladies.

I like the poem and will use it for ours too!

The gift certificates or items related to that teacher's class subject are good ideas. The teachers at both kids schools have mentioned these as they do spend a lot of their own money.

I bought some books for the classroom for the teacher's gifts for Christmas. Both of them really appreciated the books. You could write a little note in the book. The books were for the kids to read but dedicated to the teacher.

DS teacher appreciation is next week and this is what the PTA and Parent Committee has come up with:
Monday - a single flower of your choice
Tuesday - Write your teacher a special note
Wednesday - send in a piece of fruit of your choice
Thursday - send a school supply, stationary or stickers
Friday - send a sweet of your choice.
Also on Tuesday, there is a luncheon for the teachers, aids etc. And parents are asked to bring in a dish (it is a big school we have 62 staff and 600+ students)

redcardinalbird, I think that its wonderful that your DS's school is recognizing the teachers with something different all week long!!!

My DS's school sent out a year end calendar and Teacher's Day was mentioned on it but that was it. I thought for sure they would do something else but they didnt. My son said that he was the only one who gave her anything! He had to hunt her down at the end of the day on top of that. The school had her in meetings all day and they had a substitute. She loved her gift though and gave me a very heartfelt thank you at their Field Day events.


I like the idea of giving books to the class and dedicating them to the teacher. I also like the idea of making a supply box for her to use the next school year. Im trying to come up with a combo idea for the end of the year for this but I need a poem or something to go with it. Any ideas???

end of school

Just getting ready to go buy some little gifts for the kids teachers.
Always find it interesting to look on here for ideas.
Lots of great ideas.
I was a teachers assistant for 5 years.
Amazing how many presents the children would bring you.
Wow.
I thought I would add to the list of creative ideas.
Maybe it was listed on here.
But a gift certificate to the movies.
Tucked in a little plastic bucket with microwaveable popcorn and candy. Surely would be a hit.

I always enjoyed all the plants.
I love plants.

Also barnes and nobels gift certificates were nice.

Starbucks coffee gift certificates.

Also recieved socks with cute sayings.

Bird house painted by a child with bird seed.

Well off I go.
