With Teachers’ Day on September 5th, it’s the perfect opportunity to thank a special teacher for all their hard work and support. There has never been a better time for your children to show gratitude to their teachers. There are many different ways to express your appreciation, from poetry and speeches to handcrafted cards. Teacher’s Day is the best opportunity to show your love and regards to a teacher or professor and thank them in a good manner. Teachers spend a great deal of time behind their desks, reviewing homework, or going through the class curriculum. If you’re a student or a parent who on this occasion, intends to extend your gratitude to a specific teacher, offer something memorable that can be cherished for the time to come. Here are just a few quick and meaningful ways you can help your child express how much they admire their instructors.
Write a Thank You Letter
Simple ideas are sometimes the best. Getting your kids to write a heartfelt letter / thank you cards to their favorite teachers is a great way to express their gratitude. Remind them to include their influence on them and how much they appreciate all the hard work that they put through every day. You may just get them to write about a memory of a favorite class. Nothing brings more joy to a teacher than to know that their students appreciate them.
Make a Video
Capture a sweet video to honor your teacher, or put together a photo slideshow. Use your phone to record a short message, or any video recording device available. Let everyone else in your group do the same, then assign one person for putting it together. If you want to make a digital video slideshow, have your whole class join in and ask them to submit images, then clip them together. Finally, post the final version for your teacher to see!
Send a Gift
During these times of social distancing, a meaningful gift can be a sweet gesture. Create something homemade then drop it off at the doorstep of your teacher. You can also buy gifts such as a customized coffee mug, a succulent plant, or a box of chocolates. If you are unable to give your gift physically to your instructor, send Teachers’ Day gifts from one of the popular online gift stores.
Why not inspire your children to become crafty? Teachers love hand-drawn illustrations, so ask your child to be imaginative! Other options may be doing a scrapbook by the entire class, asking all the other children to do one page each for their instructor. It may include notes of thanks, pictures or poems, all in one book for the teacher to hold. Even a banner of thank you being placed in their classroom on September 5th may be a little gesture of kindness that will go a long way towards letting your teacher know that they are loved. We believe the teacher would also recall the group which put so much innovation and thought into it.
Give Them A Shout-Out
You should go the extra mile too for the teacher who really walks the extra mile for their students. Send an encouraging email to your teacher to let them know how hard he or she is working. Give details and explain the effect of his or her contributions on the life of your kid. Not only will the teacher feel that their students respect them, but the teachers will feel motivated to hear constructive input from their supervisor. If your child is grown-up and uses social media sites, they may even write a little post about their favorite teacher and why they admire them, tagging the school or using a hashtag to get everyone engaged in their group.
The role of a teacher is one of great pleasure and commitment. So don’t forget to thank your favorite teacher for all his/her hard work and year-round commitment!
