Teacher Appreciation Week - First Week of May

Teacher Appreciation Week is celebrated each year during the first week (Monday to Friday) of May. The goal of Teacher Appreciation Week is (you guessed it) to appreciate teachers! Teachers deserve heaps of appreciation because of all of the incredible work they do to help teach our children and provide them with positive experiences.

There are a bunch of different ways to show teachers how much we appreciate them! You can go the classic route and gift your teacher with a juicey red apple, you can give them a card or some chocolate, or you can even make them a sweet craft or keepsake to show your teacher that you care. There are also some bigger ways that we can appreciate our teachers. For example, children could organize a fundraiser like a bakesale or bottle drive to help raise money for their teacher's classroom supplies. Or donate your old books to the teacher's classroom for silent reading time. There are tons of other options and kids can get as creative as they want to show their teachers how much they care!

To celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week lets find ways to show our teachers that we care and appreciate all of the support they give us. Check out the crafts and activities below to help your children celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, plus they can give these crafts to their teacher as a gift!

(I think she looks like a teacher --
if you make the paper craft, you can glue it to the front of a construction paper card)
