What’s the Project? This year looks a lot different for all of us and we’ve learned to appreciate the teachers even more! If you still want to thank your child’s teacher and need teacher appreciation ideas that you can do from home, here are some to get you started!
Boy this year looks different than we thought it would, doesn’t it? I don’t know if any of us would have imagined that we’d be finishing out school years from home, but here we are.
And I think a lot of people have gained a great appreciation for teachers.
Teacher appreciation is often celebrated in May…but this year that’s going to look a little bit different. If you still want some teacher appreciation ideas but want to do them from home this year, here are some ideas to get the wheels turning in your head.
I’d like to say right away that this is just me brainstorming. If you have other ideas please add them in the comments and I will put them in here also. Let’s all help each other out in supporting and cheering on the teachers this year.
Teacher Appreciation Ideas (From Home):
Here are a few ideas to help you celebrate your teachers…from home!
For starters, remember that you could probably send things to the school and the teachers would be able to pick them up. Otherwise, you can also ask the teacher for his/her home address and many will be likely to give them to you. You’re going to have to work with your own situation to decide which of these is right for you and your teachers.
Also, be sensitive in acknowledging that money is very tight for some people right now so collecting donations might be a little bit trickier than in other years.
- This idea is probably the easiest idea-Send a gift card via email or the mail. It would be super easy to grab an Amazon gift card and send it to the teacher either by email or mail to the school or home address. A VISA gift card or Target gift card is also a popular idea. If you’re mailing it, these printable gift card holders could be fun to use.
- If you have the teacher’s address (or if she or he is willing to give it to you) have DoorDash deliver lunch each day for a week (have different parents provide it) or even just for a day. Bringing the teacher lunch during teacher appreciation week is something I love doing and this year doesn’t have to be any different-just have it delivered to their home!
- Have the kids make cards, send an email, or draw a picture. This can be sent through the internet or through snail mail. Have them all sent to you and then forward it on if your teacher doesn’t want to share her address universally but is willing to share it with you.
- Along those same lines, you could have each of the kids record a little video message and compile it and send it via email. That way she can see all of their smiling faces talking to her.
- Write a note of appreciation to him and tell him specifically what you appreciate (especially now that you have a better sense of this!). You can do this as a parent and also have your child do it. From what I hear from teachers, this is often the most meaningful thing they receive!
- If you still want to do a gift, arrange to drop it off at the school and let the teacher know to pick it up there or if you’ve got the address, again, you could leave it at the teacher’s house. Here are some great teacher gift ideas.
- Finally, if you are able to get the address of your teacher, decorating the front door of her house could be fun (especially if your school usually has a tradition of door decorating.
OK, let me know what other ideas you have! These teacher deserve to be celebrated!
