As a teacher, we receive many gifts throughout the year as students and parents seek to show their appreciation for our hard work. I always want to thank them for the generosity, but sometimes writing out thank-you notes throughout the year can seem a daunting task. But not anymore…
I printed the thank-you notes in color (but you could also print in black and white on colored paper) and then cut them apart. When a student gave me a gift, I jotted down a quick note to myself and then during my lunch break each day, I addressed the thank-you notes and sent them home that day. It kept the task from getting overwhelming and I was able to thank them specifically for what they brought without writing out a long note each time.
Some of the notes are specific to items your students may bring in – simply print, sign, and give out:
And other notes include more space for you to write a note to the family:
This cute, user-friendly, print-and-go packet is a real time saver for teachers! This 40 page packet includes notes to say “Thank-You” on any number of occasions – when a student gives you a gift, when a parent drops off a coffee, when a family donates a book, etc. Each template is included in both color and black & white. The resource also includes teacher directions and suggestions.
