But what can students do to show their appreciation? I asked a kindergartener during my first year in an Elementary school, "Isn't Mrs. Millsaps the best teacher?" Her response? "How would I know; she's the only one I've had so far." Those literal five-year-olds always manage to make me smile. Why not have students track down a former teacher and let him or her know how much they appreciate them and their influence?
Click here for a letter-writing template and thinking prompts that you can download and use to get students planning what they'll include in that note to thank a teacher that they've had in years past. It's a win-win because the students get to reminisce and reflect and a special teacher gets to read how he or she made a difference. We used it when I was on a 5th-&-6th-grade campus, so you may have to simplify it for those younger grades.
EnJOY your week; happy pampering!
