“A teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of curiosity, knowledge and wisdom in the pupils.” – Ever Garrison
For many formative years, teachers are one of the most important adults in a child’s life & nothing says Thank you like a handmade card for the Teacher. A quick “thank you” note or email takes a moment to write and send but the pleasure it gives is enormous. Last year we made a gorgeous Pencil shaped card, so the kids wanted another shaped card.
I decided to keep it simple this year. Opened PowerPoint and made a stack of books .. 3 rectangles placed on top of each other slightly misaligned. Converted to pdf and printed on white card stock. The kids colored the books using crayons. I took printouts of my favorite apple image that said #1 Teacher. Pinned it on top. .. For the inside, I printed a Chalkboard image that said Happy Teacher’s Day.
