I’ve been reading lots of blogs written by teachers in the states who are all excited about the end of the school year approaching! It’s such a busy time of year – especially if you have to pack up your classroom!!!
It’s also a very sad time of year. You have worked so closely with the same group of children all year and I”m not sure about you, but I know I become very attached to my little ones. I think I have cried every single year I’ve taught on the last day of school 🙁
Reading all these posts reminded me of the end of last year and the little gift I made for my wonderful teaching assistants. They did sooooo much to help me and the children in the classroom and we were all like a little family.
I wanted to make them something special from the kids, so I arranged for them to swap with another teacher aide for the morning so it could be a surprise…
The children had to come up with a reason why each of our teacher aides were special.
Here are some of the things the children write inside…..
|You help us and Miss Jacobs to learn. (This is my favourite one! haha)|
|You help me go on Reading Eggs when I do a mistake.|
|You help me do my work. That is why I love you Danielle.|
|You clean the tables and make them shiny for us.|
|You are good at writing.|
Aren’t they just adorable!!! If you would like to use this FREE template for someone special in your classroom, I have uploaded it for you here. 🙂
