I take every opportunity I can to promote friendship among my students. I encourage lots of compliments and positive thoughts. So when Valentine’s Day comes around, I really push the friendship idea! When I saw this idea, I thought it was fabulous! Run off a bunch of copies of this page and let your students give compliments to each other!
Another holiday means more effort to keep kids focused on learning! Why not use this free printable language arts Valentine’s activity to disguise grammar review and poetry?! Click here for the PDF: Grammatical Poetry- Valentines Day
A fellow teacher recently showed me this thank you note she had received at Christmas time.
It made me think of a few things:
How good it feels to be appreciated.
How many people it takes to run a good school.
How I show my appreciation to those I work with.
I’ve created this thank you printable (3 color options: blue, green and pink) to make it easier to show your appreciation to your fellow faculty and staff members. I know I don’t always have the budget or time to get a gift for each person who helps me in my job (librarian, cafeteria staff, maintenance staff, office workers, aides, etc.). So if you’re like me, feel free to print this page and attach some goodies (Snickers, Smarties and peanuts/any peanut candy). Be sure to write the recipient’s name in the blank space at the bottom. (These are also great for PTA/PTO groups doing teacher appreciation day.) Spread the love and your school will be all the better for it!
