Teacher Appreciation Week

May 8, 2012

Thank goodness for parent involvement at school! I have not taught a class in over five years so I have to be reminded when Teacher Appreciation Week is approaching. This year, Diego’s preschool moms collected a little cash from the parents to buy gift cards, breakfast and flowers for our amazing teachers. The kids were also to make homemade and personal cards on a piece of 8 1/2 by 11 piece of paper to fill a scrapbook for all of them and the directors. I brought out my scrapbook materials, Diego’s school pictures, glue, markers, stickers and let Diego dig in and create!

Never enough glue!

First time using stencils…loved it!

Stickers and signed with love!

Finished! I have to admit, I had to hold the stencils down for Diego and helped him frame his pictures! But he really enjoyed picking out materials and making each card a little different from the next. This project took us three 40 minute sessions and we talked a lot about how special teachers are to us, how hard they work and how much they love their students!

How are you celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week? I have a lot of teacher friends (a few are my BFFs!) and I want to wish them a great week!

Your friend,
