A Teacher Gift You Should Start on NOW

For many of us, school is just getting started.  End of year teacher gifts are FAR off of our radar. We are miles away from Teacher Appreciation Week (thank goodness. It has turned into such a circus, but that’s a post for another day.) The last days of school? Please. Let’s just get through Back to School Night first, am I right?

My teacher has a voice like a buffalo

Except then I had the CUTEST idea. On the first day of school, when I asked Lila how her day was, she said “I need three popsicles. And a nap.” The second day, she said, “When Mrs. D gets mad, she sounds like a buffalo. It’s AWESOME!” And it made me think about all the funny/silly/sweet things my students must have told their parents about me and my classroom, and I desperately wished I could have heard what those things were (I mean, the nice things, of course. I’m not a glutton for punishment. I don’t want to hear about how the kid said I’m a monster, obviously).  

So I decided that I would keep track of the little things Lila reported about at school on a  cute little paper somewhere, and then at the end of the school year, we could gift Mrs. D with a collection of the sweet, crazy, funny little moments that stood out most for Lila. Along with a fat gift card to Target. Because TARGET.

And I can’t just keep something like an adorable printable to myself, so we’ll go ahead and share it with our friends (aka YOU!).  Download the free printable HERE and put it in a safe place where you can add to it throughout the year, and we’ll check back in with you in the Spring to see how it’s going.  Follow the blog to make sure you don’t miss out on the update!

  1. What a fun idea. The end of the year is a long way off so I know I would loose the notes by then so this would have to go on the fridge. I laugh everytime my daughter comes home with a funny saying she heard from the teacher.

  2. Love this idea for a teacher gift!! I’ve done an interview in the past which was fun but I’m definitely doing this for 2017-2018 year.

  3. This is brilliant!!! We keep a text file of all the funny things our 4yo has even said (it’s a big file!), but this is a great idea for a separate file. But will it top “she sounds like a BUFFALO”?! 😀
    Thanks for the idea – love the printable, too! This is one of my favorite posts of the week!
