As the school year comes to a close, most parents are scrambling for teachers’ gifts. Instead of a mug, how about a thank you note to the teacher from your child? It’s the perfect way to personalize the gift, and show the teacher the impact they’ve had on your child’s school year.
During the year, teachers are responsible for teaching math, reading, writing and all the other subjects, but they also teach children to respect one another, play fair and be polite. A thank you note for the teacher is the perfect example that his or her student was paying attention.
A great teacher doesn’t just educate our kids, they help them to value education. They empower our kids and play a key role in shaping them into adulthood.
Tips to help your child to write a Thank You Note:
- Set aside some time to sit together. Let your child tell you what they’d like to write about. Notes can be simple or creative, depending on your child’s personality. And remember, they don’t have to be perfect. Imperfections make them special.
- With our lined thank you cards, little hands can make big letters and space them correctly.
- Have supplies on hand: a pencil, crayons, scrap paper, and stickers.
- The top portion of the cards, above the elementary lines, are the perfect space for either: your child’s artwork, a photograph or a parent’s personal Thank You note to the teacher.
By the time you are done, your child will have prepared a masterpiece that rivals any store-bought item. Expressing gratitude towards those who give so much to us, is a beautiful lesson to learn.
