  5. 5. Back To School Help a teacher stock and organize his or her classroom. Ask for gift card donations from office supply stores to help with classroom supplies. Organize a reading circle and classroom helpers. Use SignUp to coordinate volunteers to help out once a month. Share your special skills and traditions. Compile a list of special skills, hobbies, or family traditions that parents can share with the class throughout the year. Put together a Wish Notebook to stay in the office or library with teacher surveys. The surveys should ask teachers to name their favorite snack, restaurant, flower, theatre, beverage, charity, author, etc. Parents can look up gift ideas all year round. Welcome a new teacher with a basket of classroom supplies. Ask each family to donate one or two small items: pencils, markers, glue, stickers, tissues, hand sanitizer, etc. SignUp.com the EASIEST way to bring people together!
  6. 6. Show Thanks for Thanksgiving Thankful Faces of Thanksgiving Paste a collage of the children’s faces on a traditional Thanksgiving scene and have the children present it to their teacher. Graffiti Wall of Thanks Teachers say their favorite gifts involve hearing from the students themselves. Get permission to tape a large piece of butcher paper on the wall outside of each classroom. Have the students write at least one reason they are thankful for their teacher. Artwork and tasteful graffiti should be encouraged. SignUp.com the EASIEST way to bring people together!
  7. 7. Winter Holidays • Fill a basket with warm beverage packets: powdered cider, hot chocolate, tea bags, and instant coffee pouches. Include a note: “You warm our hearts! Thank you!” • Add a “teacher appreciation” section to the school newsletter. This could include quotes from students, poems, or special thanks. • Invite teachers to a “souper bowl” special lunch and serve home-made soups from crock pots. • Ask for teacher discounts and free tickets to local holiday shows and theater productions so they can have special holiday fun with their families. “Last year my class made a collective donation in my name to my favorite local charity. It felt so good knowing they were supported in a year I couldn’t afford to give much myself.“ -- 4th grade teacher, Colorado Springs, CO SignUp.com the EASIEST way to bring people together!
  8. 8. Valentines Day Ideas • Ask each child to write “I love my teacher because…” on a small heart cut from construction paper. • Ask each student to wear a red shirt to school prior to Valentines Day, and photograph the class holding a sign reading: “We love our teacher!” • Ask each student to draw a heart and sign their name on one t-shirt, or a poster, then present it to the teacher. • Organize Valentines Day activities for the class so that the teacher is free to take care of other things. Make a list of all the students in the class and give copies to each student’s parents. This assures that every child in the class receives a valentine and saves the teacher from having to take care of it. The Greatest Gifts for Teachers / SignUp, DOING GOOD just got easier!
  9. 9. Teacher Appreciation Week Select a day during the week and ask each child and their parents to present their teacher with one flower on that day. Teachers will go home with a beautiful bouquet to remind them of how much they are appreciated. Ask your local newspaper to donate one portion of a page to thank the teachers of your school for all they do. Arrange for a special treat in the teacher’s lounge – a dessert bar, special lunch, or baked goods. Post signs around the school expressing your appreciation. Setup a carwash and have older kids provide the service to the teachers during recess. Ask local businesses to donate one free meal, manicure, haircut, or personal service, then give each teacher a ticket, and hold a raffle! National Teacher Appreciation Week is held during the first full week of May each year. SignUp.com the EASIEST way to bring people together!
  10. 10. End of the Year Appreciation • Host a “teachers tailgate party” in June. Use SignUp to coordinate the event. • Compile a photo album for the teacher using photos taken throughout the year. • Help the kids produce a “what I’ll remember about this year” video for their classroom teacher. • Compile a collection of quotes about teachers from students and famous people. • Create a summer fun basket filled with books, magazines, sunscreen, a beach towel and hat, etc. • Have the class decorate a large flower pot and fill it with a beautiful plant.

  11. 11. Gifts for long-time or retiring teachers Create a video or timeline containing clips from newspapers or magazines about events that were happening in the world, each year while the teacher has been in service, as well as photos of the teacher and her former students. Frame a photo of their first class and their last class together. (Most schools keep archived copies of yearbooks.) Locate past students. Ask them to write notes or come and speak about the teacher and how (s)he impacted their lives. SignUp.com the EASIEST way to bring people together!
  12. 12. Gift Ideas for Middle and High School Teachers Bookmark your appreciation. Have your child design a simple bookmark on a computer using a graphics or word processing program. The bookmark should have a clever message that expresses gratitude and appreciation for each of their teachers and/or subjects. Be sure the student artist is identified on the back of the bookmark so that the teacher will always remember who made it for them. Print several on one page, then laminate them if possible. A poem of remembrance. Have your student write an original poem for each of their teachers that reminds them of something interesting or funny that happened in their class that year. A “Commit-Mint” Card. Have your student make a simple card with the phrase “Thank you for your commit- mint” on it. Then tape a small roll of mint flavored candy to it. There are other candy puns that can also be used. SignUp.com the EASIEST way to bring people together!

Least Favorite Gifts • Coffee mugs • Candles • Candy • Lotion • Bath salts Teachers always appreciate the thought behind the gifts they receive, but the gifts listed here are the ones teachers most often receive that they say are the least useful. “The best gift ever was a handwritten letter (on crinkled notebook paper) from a little girl. The note said all kinds of things about how she knows I love her and the class because I am caring and helpful, etc...it was perfect. Neither money nor chocolate could ever top that..” -- 3rd grade teacher Minneapolis, MN SignUp.com the EASIEST way to bring people together!
