Show Your Love for Moms and Teachers!
FOR KIDS: SHOW YOUR LOVE FOR THE TEACHERS, MOMS AND MOTHER-FIGURES IN YOUR LIFE!
For teachers, there’s nothing better than a homemade present from one of their students. It’s the best feeling in the world knowing that they have made a difference or inspired a student! To show your teacher you care, make an appreciation card and write the reasons why your teachers are important to you. Or color in this card for your teacher. This list has some more great ways to make your teacher smile, as does the National Educational Association Teacher Appreciation Week page.
