TEACHER APPRECIATION IDEAS: poem/roses of thanks for teachers
(by Renee)
When I did this I laminated the poem and punched a hole in the corner and tied it to a bouquet of roses that I had made (picked from my front yard.) and the teachers loved it. At the end it talks about roses but you could always change that to fit what gift your giving.

Thank You, Teacher

Sometimes it's hard for
Us little ones to say,
Thank you, Teacher ~ For what you taught today.

You take us by the hand
And teach us from the heart
Preparing us for life ~ From the very start.

We recognize the time and
Patience you give,
Teaching us the gospel ~ That Jesus does live.

You make us each feel special
And we feel of your great love.
You will always be remembered ~ By us and God above.

May these roses be a symbol
From all of us to you.
Thank you for your example ~ And the many things you do.
