As a parent and former teacher, I am so appreciative of my kids' teachers. Not only do they put up with my kids all day (ha!), but they also help my kids learn and grow throughout the school year. My 5-year-old has even learned to read this year!
Now that the school year is starting to come to a close, it's a great time to be thinking about teacher gifts that will let your kids' teachers know how grateful you are for the work they do. Whether for an end-of-the-year commemoration or as recognition for Teacher Appreciate Week, I think it's especially fun to tip a hat to all of the summer fun and sunshine that's right around the corner!
Here are a few ideas for giving an extra special, sunshine-y gift to a special teacher in your life. Plus, you can download this festive and fun FREE printable thank-you note to accompany any of these sweet gifts!
