On October 5th, we celebrate some of the most important people in our children’s lives and our own. World Teacher’s Day celebrates some incredibly hardworking individuals and all their contributions to societies all across the globe. Most adults, let alone most kids probably aren’t familiar with the day of recognition, but this year presents a chance to make some incredible people feel very special.
Their Very Own Plaque
In a professional setting, it’s not often teachers are awarded with plaques unless they are celebrating a very special achievement, a retirement or other landmark event in their teaching careers. But plaques can make a unique and lasting impression on any individual receiving them. Order a personalized plaque online and present it to a deserving teacher. It’s not likely they’ll receive another like it anytime soon.
Gift Card to a Their Favorite Restaurant
A gift card is a nice way to give a teacher a nice “dinner on us” from the parents and remind them that you appreciate everything they do for the school, the kids and the community. If you’re not quite sure where to get a gift card from, pick a place with some variety or have your child sneakily ask where they like to go.
A Book You Think They’ll Enjoy
A book is a great gift that keeps on giving. If you’re not sure if your teacher enjoys reading in their free time or if they will like the book, go through and highlight some of your favorite excerpts. This could open up some room for meaningful discussion or maybe even show them they can enjoy it too!
A Craft Made by Your Child
Whether your child is an advanced artist or just learning the art of finger paint, crafts and small works of art are one of the most adorable expressions of a child’s imagination. If your child enjoys arts and crafts, suggest they make something for their teacher the next time you pull out the craft box.
Say Thanks with a Card/Thank You Note
A letter is one of the most thoughtful and personal ways to express yourself to another person. It’s a way to express yourself thoughtfully and thoroughly and it can really mean a lot to a teacher that you took the time to sit down and express your gratitude for them.
