Teacher Appreciation Day

Yum
Teacher Appreciation Day is May 3 and as a teacher and principal for 25 years, I know that there are going to be a lot of people searching for an appropriate gift for their teacher over the weekend.  I'd like to propose this:  use this free printable here on my blog.  This free printable is simply a thank you letter that you and your child can write together (or independently, if able)  I really love it because there is a space at the top where you can draw a picture!




When I was a teacher, these hand-written notes were so special to me.  I loved reading what the students liked about our classroom.  Here are two of the many I saved:

From a fourth grade student at West School
From a sixth grade student at Lee School
Weren't those fun?  My students were awesome and I know how blessed I was to teach at these two schools.  I had the best colleagues one could hope for!

This download is free, free from advertising of my blog and free to use and share!  It is my gift to you so that you can appreciate your teacher in style!


I'd love to know if you are going to use the stationary.  I want to do more free printables but first I need to know if you like them!  Leave me a message in the comments!  Thank you!

  1. Those sweet notes have to be worth it all, right? It's such a wonderful gift to educate our future, thank you! When I was a substitute teacher I would get the sweetest letters and I loved them. :)
    Thanks for sharing your printable with us.

  9. I know that being a teacher can be challenging but I'm grateful that you took on a job that most people don't want to do. When you get notes like that it just makes your day but shows how wonderful a teacher you are.

  10. My son just finished his first year of college and we have contacted a few of his teachers (some from elementary school) that were exceptional to let them know how much we appreciate the role they played in his life. They cry every time. We do the same for my daughter.

  12. I bet it feels so good as a teacher to get hand-written notes and drawings from students. My brother recently volunteered to DJ at my nephew's dance, and the kids wrote 'thank you' notes…they were sooooo cute.

  13. I love getting handwritten notes from my students too. I have a folder that I keep all of their notes in and they bring me a lot of joy whenever I look through them.
