Not long ago, I started seeing teacher appreciation ideas pop up all over Facebook, Pinterest, and my favorite blogs. There were so many ideas for Teacher Appreciation Week and for end of the year gifts- and a lot of them are super cute! As a graphic designer, I like to offer free printables that are useful, but after seeing what was out there, I really wondered, “What could I possibly add?”
That’s when this idea came to mind- a Printable Teacher Newspaper. Take a look:
This is something that teachers can have their entire class complete, or parents can give have their child complete it as a sweet “thank you note” for teacher appreciation. It can be sent as a teacher appreciation gift alone or easily paired with one of the many amazing gift ideas out there!
The great thing about this printable is its flexibility of use. Depending on the abilities of your children, you can have them sit down and do this own their own. Or, if they need more guidance or help, you can sit with them and help. If you have a young child just learning how to write, he or she only needs to write a few words at a time here. This printable would be excellent for children with special needs, too. If your child needs a little more structure in an activity, this provides it! Or if you need to be the one to write, you can chat about his or her favorite events from the school year and write what he or she mentions.
I’ve heard so many teachers express how glad they are when they get a handwritten note from a student or parent. In fact, I still have a little box filled with letters and pictures from when I was a student teacher more than ten years ago! Now that I’m a parent, I try to have my kids take the time to think of something specific to thank their teachers for. It’s a great way to show our appreciation to our teachers!
This printable is a high resolution JPG ready to print on a standard 8.5 x 11 inch page. You can choose to print it on regular paper or cardstock. It’s yours to print on your own or take to a copy center. Please only use this for personal use. It may not be resold, edited, or claimed as your own work.
Hope you all have a great end to your school year!
Summer will be here before you know it!
