Teacher Appreciation Week

The week of May 6th was Teacher Appreciation week! Hailey has an AMAZING teacher! After looking on Pinterst I decided to do something small for each day of the week, you know something useful for her class. Then Friday I wanted to so something a little more special for her.

So this is what we did for the week!

Monday: Some nice new pens

Tuesday: Glue sticks

Wednesday- Highlighters

Thursday- #2 Pencils (This was my least favorite. Maybe it was the tag I made, but I wish I had of done something else)

Friday- This was the one I was most excited for. I made one for the teacher and one for the part time teacher assistant (or paraeducator). The tags for the teacher said "Thank you for quenching my thirst for knowledge" and the para's said "Thank you for being a great "ade" for your class". Inside I put Crystal Light Lemonade packets in each.

What I was even more proud of was how much I spent all week making these things. I got all the supplies from Target and the cups from AC Moore. The cups are those nice reusable ones. Target wanted $9 a piece for them. I checked at AC Moore and found them for $1.99 each, then I had a coupon so I got them for $1.50 each. The Crystal Light lemonade was $1.00 for 10 sticks, which I split in the cups. So Friday's gift came to $4. Then the pens were the most expensive at $2.99. So my grand total for the week was $10.32. Not to shabby!

PS: Hailey said the teacher loved her cup and has bringing it every day with iced tea! That makes Hailey very happy!
