End of The Year Teacher Gift: Fill In The Blank

It's the end of the school year!!  My kids get out early on Friday and then that's it for Kindergarten and Third Grade.  I have been trying to figure out what to do for the teachers to show our appreciation.  I recall getting an odd assortment of gifts, some of which were nice and some of which were...well, odd.  I have a lot of coffee mugs and candles from that era of my life.  And while I always try to appreciate the thought behind the gift, I don't want to clutter up someone else's desk. 

When I was teaching, one of my favorite holiday gifts to make for parents were kid interviews.  I would make a cute little story and leave blanks in it for the kids to fill in.  I'm sure you've seen them for Mother's Day or Father's Day.  So I made one for teachers and thought some of you might enjoy it as well.

The picture is a bit small, but it should link you to a PDF version you can use.  If you want me to email you a copy as a Publisher file, just email me and I'll get it out to you.  We filled them out last week for the kids' teachers and Henry's teachers said she loved it and was planning on framing it.

Hope you parents out there are surviving the last few days of school!  Have a great day!


  1. Very cute! I am sure that the teachers get a kick of seeing what the kids have to say!

  2. My kids have been out of school since last week so we already gave our gift, but I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS!!!! I think it is the cutest thing. I bet teachers would love it! Adorbs!! --Lisa

  3. What a great idea! I would imagine that teachers have a massive collection of coffee mugs.

  4. Such a cute idea! Suddenly I'm panicking because next week is the last week of school and I didn't even know giving gifts was a thing. I should have because my mom and brother are teachers, and I do think they have one of the hardest and most important jobs on earth..

  5. So cute! Totally printed it. And, how did I miss that you were a teacher in a past life? Cool.

    We contributed money to the kindergarten class gift, so this printable will be nice in a card. I'm thinking of a hanging basket of flowers for the 4th grade teacher. Speak up now, former teacher, if you think that's a terrible idea!!

    1. Ha Katie! I like flowers! Sometimes I can even keep them alive!! :) My personal tip would be to shy away from anything that has to live in the kitchen. That's the place I really don't need any more "stuff."

  6. I once got a gallon-sized bag of potpourri. Useless, large, and possibly offensive--do I smell?


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear your thoughts. Please leave a link so I can return the visit.
