6yo has had a great year at school this year, and her teacher has been great. It always helps when you have a teacher that relates to your child, and 6yo’s really has. It’s a shame she is leaving at the end of term for another school, but I am glad that 6yo had the opportunity to be in her class, and she wasn’t in the year below and would have missed out on her teaching her altogether.
I always wonder why we buy teachers chocolates and flowers. Surely they can’t eat them all, and the flowers don’t last very long. I begrudge spending out a lot of money on teacher gifts, but I know that 6yo likes to give her teacher something at Christmas and the end of term. Oh and then there’s the FOUR teaching assistants as well as the TWO teachers in her year. It can get really expensive, so I have to be creative and think of something different that they will HOPEFULLY appreciate and like.#
I have seen people selling personalised plaques and I thought, well how hard can that be. I’m not very artistic, but the present comes from 6yo not me, so we purchased some blank wooden hearts from the internet for around £3 for 8, and found Daddy’s Sharpie pen (shhh don’t tell him).
After painting the hearts with some acrylic paint that we had in the house, we printed off the writing onto paper, and then traced over the heart with it so the indents were there to follow.
Finishing off with some ribbon, we have teacher gifts that are personal, (we have written the year group, 2013 and love from 6yo on the back as well to truly personalise it).
What have you done for teacher gifts? Or don’t you buy them?
