Teacher Appreciation Week

I am so excited that this week is Teacher Appreciation Week!  It is such a fun week at school with all the sweet gestures from students, parents and administration.  Speaking of...I need to prepare for my boys' teachers.  This year my oldest is in middle school.  I can't imagine him walking in with gifts for his teachers though.  Any thoughts or suggestions for middle school teachers?

Happy Teachers Appreciation to me!  My wish list is a mile long and I can't wait to save a little...ok, really buy some more, but you get the picture:) I am hoping to make a dent in my wish list.  I am also joining in on the sale by putting my TpT store on sale for 20% off. TpT will then take off an additional 10% and that will take you my dear friends up to 28% savings!

I have been busy prepping activities for the end of the school year.  I just posted my Over the Moon Unit- Vowel Variant /oo/ Spelled oo and ew.

I am giving away 3 of these units because I APPRECIATE YOU!  Please leave a comment about your favorite Teacher Appreciation gift/giveaway/memory ALONG with your email address.  I will pick 3 winners tomorrow night.  Good luck:)

And speaking of lucky, Katie Smith, was the winner of my 300 Follower Giveaway.     Congratulations!

  2. I can't recall a Teacher Appreciation memory…but last week one of my students told me he was "never leaving Kindergarten because he couldn't have any other teacher" but me. That was pretty awesome. :) Unfortunately (or Fortunately) for him - I'm sending him to first grade anyway.

  3. Your Over the Moon unit looks adorable! One year, parents decorated each of our doors for Teacher Appreciation Week. My parents had each kid say what they liked about me and my assistant, and they also made us a book with each kids picture and what they said. It was priceless!
