Teacher Appreciation Week is the first full week in May with Teacher Appreciation Day usually on that Tuesday. I’m a planner, so I’m already thinking ahead to this year’s Teacher Day. Of course, you can celebrate your child’s teacher and other school workers any time of the year.

How you say thank you can be a bit more elaborate, like organizing a special breakfast in the teacher’s lounge before school. But even the smallest gesture, like writing a brief note in your child’s homework folder, can mean a lot.

Ideas for the Home by Kenarry is full of free printables and as I started looking for some ideas to save for teacher cards, I realized we have a ton right here designed by contributors.

They’re all so cute! And most only need you to print and cut, or add a small item you can pick up from your favorite store. Gifts cards are almost always a good gift idea!
