Creative Teacher Appreciation Week Ideas

Teacher Appreciation Week gives students and parents a unique opportunity to show teachers how much s/he is loved! Get creative this year with our FUN 5 ideas:

thank you notes1.  Love Bomb! Cover your teacher or chosen staff person’s door with ‘thank you’ and ‘love’ notes written by students and parents! Make the notes personal and completely cover their door, desk, or bulletin board for a real surprise that shows how much s/he is loved! See How to Drop a Love Bomb.

2.  Class Carnival! Turn the teacher’s lounge or classroom into a mini carnival for an hour or two where teacher’s get to let loose and have some fun! With simple carnival games like a bean bag toss or duck pond, and fun carnival concessions, this will be a teacher appreciation day they’ll never forget! Don’t miss Classroom Carnival Ideas.

3.  Flash Mob! Turn recess into a flash mob – choreograph a simple dance you can email a video of and give students and parent volunteers a couple weeks to learn. Plan one day’s recess where the teacher is asked to come outside and watch the surprise performance – end with a big THANK YOU!

4.  Brunch Bunch! Delight your entire grades staff with a delicious brunch menu available for their convenience in the teacher’s office or lounge. Check out 5 Favorite Teacher Appreciation Recipes!

5.  Scavenger Hunt! Plan a simple scavenger hunt with class parents which entails leaving a daily clue for the teacher to find a sweet token of appreciation in various locations in their classroom and grade wing.  Hang a reusable tote bag with their name on it on the back of their class door, hide a coffee gift card under their desk, compile thank you notes from class parents and present in a gift basket hidden in a student’s cubby – the ideas are endless!
