I love the way our PTA organizes our week because they pick a theme for each day and do it in a way that tries to make it equitable, so that all students can feel like they can show appreciation for their teachers. We have a day where the students where school colors, pick a flower from their garden (or the school garden) to bring to their teacher, make a card, and donate school supplies and candy to big buckets at the front of the school!
My room parent was so creative (and is totally on Pinterest!) and really worked hard to make each day special for us!
|Check out those pencil vases! And I loved getting to add each child's flower to make a gorgeous bouquet!|
|Cards from all the students! Adorable!|
And, I won the teacher raffle! I had told my kiddos all week that I wanted to win, totally joking, but when it happened, they swarmed around me, giving me hugs like I'd won the lottery! Did I mention I love my 3rd graders!?
|Bath & Body goodies AND a Starbucks gift card!|
And, to all of my fellow teachers out there, just know that there is no higher calling!
