Genuine and creative end of year thank you notes for teachers.
My kids finished school last week! I am VERY excited to have the summer off from school! I am also very grateful to the wonderful teachers that all of my children had this year. It was a crazy year with a lot of uncertainty and changes, but the kids had truly stellar teachers, and it made a huge difference!
Writing Thank You Notes for Teachers
We took the easy route and contributed to class gifts for all of the teachers, rather than buying gifts ourselves. But I grew up writing thank you notes to teachers that I loved and it’s a tradition I have carried on with my own kids. Teachers appreciate heartfelt thank you notes, and they don’t have to be fancy! Eight-year-old Emma came up with both of these – she had two classroom teachers this year. I love the work she put into them. I love her clever use of the pinwheel (which she turned into a flower) to show how much she learned from her once-a-week Science teacher!
The teacher Emma had during the rest of the week had a wonderful personality and sense of humor. I love the way that influence shows up in Emma’s thank you note. Emma can be very reserved and quiet, and I think it was really great for her to connect with a teacher with a very different personality. She learned a lot, too – they did some writing activities that I particularly admired!
Johnny also made very nice cards for his teachers. Unfortunately they were never photographed in the chaos of getting the kids off to school at the end of the year with Mike out of town. Next year!
Do you have a favorite way to tell teachers thank you?
