Teacher Appreciation Week Ideas + FREE Printables

I’ve always felt appreciative of those who contribute to my children’s well-being, education, and needs. Needless to say, the pandemic gave me a whole new perspective on life and learning, and it’s safe to say I along with many others got to see what the workload of a teacher is firsthand. The stress of lesson planning, scheduling, adapting to each child’s individual needs {and attitudes}, and finding unique ways to make not only educational but FUN. How in the world do they do it? I mean, seriously, if you know please let me in on the secrets here.

Here are some ways we can show some much-deserved love and appreciation for our teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week happening May 6th – May 10th, 2024!

  1. Write a note or email from YOU the parent to tell them how much you appreciate them!
  2. Have {and help} your children complete one or all of our FREE Teacher Appreciation Week Printables and send them in with your child!    
  3. Send some flowers! Or, draw some and drop them off, ahem FREE printable #3!
  4. Have your children make up a song about their school day and sing it to them in a video clip and email over!
  5. Coordinate with other families on a bigger gift for your teacher!
  6. Send them an e-gift card or a physical gift card in with your kiddo to one of their favorite places {bonus points for shopping local!}
  7. VOLUNTEER at school or reach out to see if they need any help! 
  8. School supplies! Maybe do a “coupon card” for XX amount of dollars of supplies of their choice or a box of various items they will need!
  9. Subscriptions: Audible, Hello Fresh, InstaCart, something to make their busy schedule easier!
