Teacher Appreciation Week is this week at my son’s school. Today the school’s suggested gift is “A note from the Student.” As discussed on my Monday and Tuesday posts (links at the bottom of this post), the school sent home a list of suggested gifts of the week:
Monday: Small plant or flower
Tuesday: A small sweet treat
Wednesday: A note from the student.
Thursday: Gift card (for example a $5 iTunes gift card)
Friday: A classroom supply (glue, hand sanitizer, markers, etc)
With each of the gifts my son has given so far, he’s added a small note. Especially on his flower card. My son and I sat down together to further brainstorm some ideas he could write to her – different/new ideas.
We talked about how his work sheet papers always appear on his desk after lunch. How did he think they got there? I asked him how he thinks the teacher has all the slides and movies ready for them to watch. Did she prepare them before class? He started to laugh and realized she’s working when the students are in school. I started writing the things we talked about on a yellow sheet of paper – in his words.
I also asked him why he likes his teacher. He didn’t respond right away. I asked him, “Is she mean?” He laughed and said, “No!” We’ll I’m sure glad! He said she’s nice and funny.
He said he likes when she reads stories to the class and when they learned about Egypt. Now he was thinking on his own! Just what I wanted him to do!
