5 Last Minute Teacher Appreciation Week Ideas
This year, the official theme of National Teacher Appreciation Week is extra(terrestrial). The National PTA dubbed the theme to be “Out of this World.” Pretty fitting, since teachers are a stellar group of people.
Decorate the Teachers’ Doors
Turn their doors into a full-on space scene. Pinterest has great ideas on how to make your spacey ideas come to reality!
Host a Snack Cart
Surprise teachers throughout the day by filling a cart full of snacks and treats. Provide healthy options to keep them fueled, but definitely sneak a treat or two, like these Candy Coated Cards.
Have Students Write Notes of Appreciation
Provide students with pen and paper and ask that they write a thank you note to their teachers. Display the notes on a wall for all to see or collect them and give to the teachers individually.
eCards for Teachers
Send your appreciation in an ePraise. It’s a free way to remind them how valued they are!
Food is the way to most people’s hearts (it’s not just me, right?). Covering one of their meals for the day is a great way to let them know you care about them and what they do.
