Feelin' Appreciated!

This was a FUN-filled week both at home and at school.

Parks and I have been busy, busy with lots of things that we cannot share with you yet.... mwuahahahaha the suspense must be killing you... 
no worries... 
you will find out soon enough what we are hiding ;)

In the meantime, it was teacher appreciation week this week and my students SPOILED me.
I must say I was feeling really, really appreciated. The students and their parents had SO many kind words for me, they brought me sweet gifts, and were just amazing all week long.

Monday was bring your teacher fruit day and I forgot to snap a pic, but I got lots of green apples (the only type of apple I like) and strawberries! I also got some apple sauce and a Fruity Pebbles cereal bar from one of my out-of-the-box thinkers!

Tuesday was bring your teacher flowers day:
my little ole' apartment now smells just wonderful!

Wednesday was write your teacher a note or draw them a picture:
that painting was given to me by a student a few months ago... warms my heart!!

Thursday was bring your teacher their favorite drink:
Yahhh... my students know me pretty well... and this is only half of the gift cards and coffee drinks I got! I'll be at Starbucks every day ;)

Friday was bring your teacher a treat:
See? I told you, I was spoiled. That's a 12 pack of Pellegrino - a twelve pack!!!

My week ended today with field day and while I am exhausted from running around all day, my heart is full. My little first graders are my own little family and I hope they know how much they mean to me!

Have a great weekend :)

    1. Amen to that, Alyce! The kids were so stinkin' sweet!!

  3. Teachers day is very special for children and on this day they always do something new in order to make their teachers happy. Flowers are the most beautiful gift that can be given on nay occasion and it looks extremely good. It is liked by all and it gives a very special feeling. I also gave my mom very special flowers on mother's day to make her feel special. I ordered it from postal flowers. They were very beautiful.
