Teacher Appreciation Curriculum

Teacher, Teacher

Teacher, Teacher, Children seeker, How does your classroom grow? With smiles and tears, Hugs and cheers, And the sweetest girls and boys we know.

Daylene’s Note: You could make a really cool teacher gift using this poem.


Large clay pot
Wallet sized pictures of the children in the classroom
Florist Styrofoam
Peat Moss
Construction Paper
Popsicle Sticks

Cut one flower shape for each child in the classroom. With a glue stick, glue each child’s picture on a flower. Attach a Popsicle stick to each flower. Arrange the flowers on the Styrofoam in the pot. Spread peat moss around the top to cover the Styrofoam. Write the poem above on the pot.

Supplies are something teachers run out of each year, help stock them up. Stickers are a great idea.

Teachers should be the first people to appreciate each other. One idea is to write a kind message and tape it to a coworkers back. At the end of the day you can read all of the encouraging messages!
