Oh No! It's the end of the year!

The end of the school year is so busy, but don't forget to take time to thank the teacher for a wonderful year! 
Here are some ideas that I have done in the past. 

*  Purchase a plant, decorate the pot and add a tag that reads, "Thanks for helping me grow!” 
*  Purchase a "decorate your own" coffee cup and put a Starbucks gift card in it.
*  A simple heartfelt letter of thanks is always welcome. Make your own on your home computer.
*  Create a Thank You stepping stone (here is a good site to DIY)  
*  Share the cost of purchasing a director's chair, and have the students sign their names on the cloth.

And in my own search, I came across these inspiring ideas 
(why recreate the wheel?)
