I know in some parts of the country, school already started a few weeks ago. Around here school starts today or tomorrow. I thought I would give you grade school moms out there a little back to school gift, to start the year off right. It's a "get to know your teacher" free printable! I made these for my girls two years ago and have figured out how to make it into a pdf so you can print too! I have my girls take this to school on the first day and give to the teacher. The teacher (when they have a free second) can fill it out and send it home with your student. Here's a sneak peek of what it will look like:
I thought the cute apple border was a nice touch! This has really helped us get to know our teachers so much better. Teachers do so much for our kids all year, and our kids are in their care seven hours a day. This is the perfect way to understand them better as a person. Soon you will know many secrets, like when their birthday is, what their favorite baked good is, and if they have a favorite scent. If you know that their favorite kind of candy is a Kit Kat bar, how nice would it be at the end of a long testing week to sneak a king-sized candy bar on their desk. Do they drink Diet Coke religiously or do they love Wild Cherry Pepsi? At Christmas time you will know exactly what kind of gift to give them, because you will know they are a huge sports fan, an avid scrapbooker, or that their Scotty dog is the love of their life. I also learned invaluable things like our Kindergarten teacher does not like candles of any kind (candles are a common present for many teachers) because she owns birds, and apparently birds and scented candles do not mix.
My girls and I always try to make their favorite baked good and bring them a plate of it on their birthday with a kiddie hand made card. Being thoughtful is the key here! I think this is a win win for everyone. You can get the inside track on the things your teacher loves the most (hello, brownie points) and at the same time, the teacher feels extra love and appreciation for the amazing job they do every day.
So without much further ado, I give you the free printable:
