Teacher Appreciation~2

Here are the things I did last year for Ms. Beck.  Let me know if you find some inspiration!

Name Poem Plaque
Ms. Beck made these acrostic name poems in class with our kids names and they were really neat. 
So I got the idea to make one out of her name and let my son pick the words (and write them).  I printed her name vertically onto scrapbook paper, mod podged it onto wood, tied a ribbon onto it, then mounted the wood onto white beadboard (I got the wood and beadboard from a house being built nearby!). 
Then I let T carefully write the words he chose to describe Ms. Beck.  
The easel is from IKEA.  I painted it white to match.

Spa Basket 
okay it is a stretch on the rhyme but it works...lotion, facial bars, bubble bath, body wash, chapstick 
(all bought with coupons for little or no cost!)
Then when I got to school that day to volunteer, I let each child in the class write something special about Ms. Beck on a die-cut flower, taped it to a straw, and poked it into her basket.

Movie Night
“Superman, Batman, pick one to see. You are a Super Hero to me!
I’m “Soda”lighted that you are my teacher!”
I just copied and pasted the Redbox logo and printed it onto white paper.  Then I glued it onto a homemade red envelope.  Add popcorn, movie candy,  some soda, and the cute tag line above and you are set.

Chocoriffic! Can
I know teachers probably get lots of candy so I filled this one with premium chocolates! 
The can is a formula can covered with scrapbook paper and tied with a chocolate-y brown ribbon. 
The tag is hooked on with the binder clip.

Covered Door~The Recipe for Success
I think decorating the classroom door is a super cute way to say Your GREAT!  I found the "Recipe for Success" theme out in blogland and then I went to the dollar store and got some things to go along with it. 
First I covered the door with some polka dot wrapping paper this made it so easy and cute!
I got 2 packages of plates to write names on, a set of oven pads, some cooking utensils, and an apron that all of her students could sign.  I wrote "Cooking up some Fun" on it.  I stuck the oven pads to the door with Scotch brand removable sticky hooks and they held great all week.  Then I die-cut apples and let the kids write the thing Ms. Beck had taught them that they loved the most. 

Cinco de Mayo
(I forgot to take a photo of this one last year and she took it home that night
and used it so I couldn't get a photo the next day!)
Cinco de Mayo always falls during Teacher Appreciation week so we might as well go with it, right ladies? 
Last year we did chips, salsa, and a taco kit.   This year I think I will do some cute margarita glasses and maybe a mix, nonalcoholic of course! 
Our tag read something like 
"Happy Cinco de Mayo! Have a Buena Fiesta, You are a Muey Buena Teacher!" 
...not sure if that is correct Spanish but she got it, I think!

Check back, I will post some things I am doing this year on Friday.


  1. I LOVE the movie night idea with the redbox card and cash. So clever!! Thanks for sharing!
