October 5 - World Teachers' Day

October 5 is celebrated as World Teachers' Day.

Here at Excel Math, every day is the perfect time to celebrate teachers and thank them for their hard work and dedication to their students.

Here are a few ways you can encourage your students to show appreciation to their teachers.

Download this Teacher Appreciation certificate and/or the tie patterns below, and copy or print one for each of your students to give to a favorite teacher.

Appreciation Certificate

Ask each student to think of one teacher or staff person at your school who has been influential in their lives thus far.

Brainstorm as a class to find adjectives that could be used to describe these special people (thoughtful, energetic, caring, wise, empathetic, supportive, encouraging, etc.).

Then have each student choose a tie pattern or award or thank-you card (or design of her choice) and write a brief note of thanks or appreciation to the chosen teachers.

Have the students draw pictures on the back or continue the note and sign their name.

Students who finish quickly can design a poster, banner or mural or other appreciation to hang in the teacher lounge or hallway.

Have the entire class sign their names to the poster, banner or mural.

Sort the certificates and give them out to your colleagues over the next week.

From all of us here at Excel Math: "Thank you, teachers!"
