Teacher Appreciation and End-of-the-Year Gifts

Favorite Teacher Gifts

It's that time of year when teachers' desks (mostly elementary teachers, that is) fill up with gifts from their students in appreciation for the year.

As a high school teacher, the gifts we most frequently receive are invitations to graduation parties in which we are fed wonderful meals and delicious cake. I can never complain about free food!

But once in awhile we receive more tangible gifts and they are always a welcome surprise. This year I received a creative package from one of my graduating seniors that included a cup & straw that said, "Thank you for quenching my thirst for knowledge." She included some yummy Crystal Light flavor drops and hand sanitizer in fruity scents--definitely useful for any teacher.

Other cute ideas for teacher gifts include the chocolate pencil we received from NHS members this year. The students covered a package of Rolos with a sleeve that looked like a pencil. It said, "Thanks for sharpening our minds." They used a Hershey's Kiss for the tip of the pencil.

Of course, I always like word clouds. So receiving one from a student is always special. They can be made in a word processing app. or using design software. Or use a website like www.tagxedo.com or www.wordle.net to create them for you.

So what are your favorite teacher gifts you've received? Comment below or share a link.
