Ideas for teacher appreciation:
early grade students
Here are some teacher appreciation ideas
for early grade children and for parents wishing to help their kids with a teacher appreciation work. Parents: you can also buy a gift for teacher appreciation
TEACHER APPRECIATION COLLAGE
A child-made collage can be a very funny and rewarding expression of teacher appreciation, both on Teachers day and along the year. Parents should guide their kids towards collages made with easy and safe materials: different types of paper, child-safe glue, paper flowers, stickers, pictures, plastic scissors for kids, etcetera. Have your child dedicate the collage for teacher appreciation with a little poem
or some few words.

TEACHER APPRECIATION DRAWING
Children’s drawings are one of the favourite expressions of their affection. This is the way they normally work for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etcetera. They just love to draw, and they will tend to draw the things and people they like most. Therefore, if you encourage your children to do a teacher appreciation drawing, they will certainly have a good time and the teacher will be delighted.
They should try something simple, and here are some ideas:
- A simple motif, like a flower, a fruit, a pet, the Sun, the Moon, a heart…
- The school facade or the classroom.
- The teacher by the blackboard.
- The child’s family or house.
- The child with the teacher.
And don’t forget to dedicate this work with a couple of teacher appreciation lines or a poem
TEACHER APPRECIATION HOME-MADE POSTER
This is a funny idea for teacher appreciation
. You buy a large cardboard and make a central hole for your child’s face. The kid can then draw a teacher appreciation motif and write some teacher appreciation lines on it, with a dedication to the teacher. When the poster is ready he can hold it and show his or her face through the central hole. The parents take a picture and develop it (big size). This picture, with or without a frame, makes an excellent and original teacher appreciation gift.
TEACHER APPRECIATION HOME-MADE POSTCARDS
You can buy a set of blank cardboard cards. They should be hard enough for posting. Your kids can draw them for teacher appreciation and they can be posted to the teacher and classmates.
TEACHER APPRECIATION WRITING
“My teacher is…” is possibly the most typical teacher appreciation work
, but it is also a good way to develop your child’s imagination and writing skills. These are some writing prompts that can be useful:
TEACHER APPRECIATION CERTIFICATE
- Write about your favourite field trip. Tell where you went, what you saw, who you were with, and what you learned. What made it your favorite trip?
- Think about all the people who have taught you since birth. Which ones have helped you the most? In what ways did they help you? How can you let them know that you appreciate their efforts?
- What is your teacher like? What do you like most about him or her?
A kid-made cardboard certificate for teacher appreciation
will be a beautiful gift and, for most teachers, it will be more valuable than their college diploma. Your kid can make a drawing in a corner of the certificate, and then you can add central lines to fill in the teacher’s name, the date, etcetera. Some ideas for the headline:
- Teacher Appreciation Certificate.
- A Wonderful Teacher.
- A Terrific Teacher!
- The Greatest Teacher is:
- Three Cheers for:
- Best Teacher Diploma.
