Reading, Writing, and Appreciation

Today kicks off Teacher Appreciation Week. I don't think anyone would argue that everyday should be Teacher Appreciation Day but I'm glad we have a week where everyone can join in unison and do something extra special for our teachers.

I was honored to be asked to create two FavorCakes for the teachers at Scottville Elementary in Michigan. I can't wait to hear how their celebration goes and will post an update on the blog.

In the meantime, here are some clever and tasty ideas from to say thank you.
  • "You are out of this world" tag attached to a Milky Way or Mars candy bar
  • "You deserve an extra payday!" tag attached to a Payday candy bar
  • "There is no 'sub'stitute for you!" tag attached to a gift card for the local sub shop
  • "You are 'extra' special" tag with a pack of Extra Gum
  • "We appreciate the 'mounds' of work you do!" tag attached to a Mounds candy bar
  • "Thanks a 'latte'!" tag with a gift card from local coffee shop, special coffees or travel mug
  • "You are 'souper'! - soup mix, custom decorated soup bowls or homemade soup
  • "You are a 'treasure' tag with Treasures candy
  • "You are the apple of our eye" with a basket of apples (construction paper leaves with nice sayings---A+ teacher, you're special etc. can be hot glued to the stems)
