Teacher's Favorite Things {Free Printable}

For those of you that might not know, I used to teach 2nd grade when we lived in Waco. I talked about my classroom here, and shared some classroom resources I made here and here. I just thought I'd mention those links since it's back to school time, and hope that they might be helpful to some of you. Looking at those posts really makes me miss teaching!

Along the lines of school, Manny will be starting Mother's Day Out in September! I am so excited for him to get the chance to have regular interaction with kids his own age. This will also give me the opportunity to have some time to work on getting my business up and running. We have found a great program for him to attend, and we're getting all geared up for his first day of school.
My sisters have always made a point to find out their kid's teachers favorite things at the beginning of the year. As a former teacher, I love this idea! I can't tell you how many candles and bottles of lotions I still have from being in the classroom....well over 3 years ago. While of course it's the thought that counts, I think taking the time to find out what the teacher likes is so thoughtful and shows the teacher you really want to show your appreciation in a way that would mean the most to her. To me, even a $5 gift card to Hobby Lobby would be better than another candle. :)

So I made this printable to give to Manny's teacher, and wanted to share it with all of you too. You can download it by going here. (Update: if that link won't work, you can try here.)

Here's to a great school year! :)

  11. What a fabulous idea! I know I would have appreciated this when I taught pre-school, because I still have a closet full of lotions and candles. Lol!

    Hope you and your man had a great time away!

  12. This is such an awesome idea! When I taught the homeroom moms would get these at the first of the year and then would send a copy home of each teachers before teacher appreciation week! Jackson's school doesn't do this so this will be perfect so I know what his teacher will like! Thanks so much for posting!

  15. Your blog is adorable as are you! I too am a former teacher turned SAHM. I LOVE this printable. My son is going to preschool 2 days this fall and this printable is perfect! I too remember numerous candles during my teaching days. I always loved when parents asked a few of my favorite things.
