Things We Love: National Teachers Day
Did you know that May 8 is National Teachers Day? And the week of May 7-11 is Teacher Appreciation Week! We love our teachers as they help all of our children grow, learn and flourish every single day.
This National Teachers Day or for the end-of-the-school-year gift, show your favorite teacher how much you care with an appropriately themed gift from Chalkboard China:
1. Daisy Vases with Pens/Highlighters/Pencils
Fill a few of our Daisy Vases with school essentials. Patterned pencils, funky pens, every color of Sharpie, and more, a teacher can never do without enough school supplies. Chalk on a “Thank You” across the vases or draw on fun images like apples, books, and school buses. Then, supply her with her own case of colorful chalk that she can use for both her Chalkboard China and the classroom’s chalkboard!
2. Class Signatures on a Charger or 10″ Plate
Want to give your teacher something that she’ll always remember your child’s class by? Using our Charger or our 10″ Plate, write the teacher’s name and the year around the rim and have every student in the class sign their name onto the surface. This would be a thoughtful way for her to remember her 2011-12 class (and with such a fun gift, it may become her favorite class to remember)!
3. Cylinder/Medium/Large Vase with Flowers
Give the classic gift of “Thank You” flowers, but with a fun twist! Using either our Cylinder Vase, Medium Vase, Large Vase, Rectangle Vase, or a few of our Daisy Vases, pick up some sweet blooms at your local florist or grocery store and arrange them inside. Then, write a fun message for the teacher, thanking her for a great year. On the last day of school and before the final bell rings, have a parent deliver the flowers for a fun surprise and lasting memory the entire classroom can enjoy.
We don’t know if there’s anything better than incorporating a chalkboard gift for a teacher! Shop Chalkboard China today for unique teachers gifts that are sure to please even the strictest professor.
