Teacher Appreciation ~ Links

*cutecolors teacher

In our last letter from Moses, we received an unexpected and delightful note from his teacher. Has that ever happened to you? Teacher Emma wrote: “[Moses] is now able to write on his own due to the material you always send him… He is social and hard working. He fears God and respects elders…” That made my day and it called for a little teacher appreciation for Teacher Emma in my next letter.  :)





Here are some ideas to encourage your child to appreciate and thank their teachers, whether they are teachers of your sponsored child or teachers of your own children. It doesn’t have to be anything big. Just a note to let them know that you are thinking of them; or some ‘I am praying for you today’ tags; or ‘you’re a star teacher’ tags for your child to hand out. Teaching our children to take time to appreciate and thank their teachers, any time of the year, will encourage, energize, and probably endear them to their teachers forever.





Devotionals  lots to choose from to bless your child’s teacher; include a snippet in a note to brighten their day
