This year Teacher Appreciate Week is May 2-6. If you are looking for a good way to show how much you appreciate your child's teacher, go no further. Here are some presents we gave in the past and some great sites I found with wonderful ideas for teacher gifts.
A large scented candle with a ribbon and tag reading: "A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others" or "You are a scent-sational teacher!"
Buy an inexpensive canvas tote or make it yourself. Then jazz it up with iron-on transfers (see Tote Bags with Iron-On Silhouettes). Fill the tote with teacher supplies like sharpies, notepads, pens, etc. Or you can fill the tote with children's books for the classroom.
