It’s the end of the school year and time to pull together that amazing gift that lets your child’s teacher know just how much you appreciate everything she’s done to help her students this year. But what?
Well, consider thanking your teacher AND helping him incorporate ag into next year’s classroom with these five fun gifts!
Nothing says “agriculture” like gifting your teacher with a live plant at the end of the year. Beef up that gift with some pumpkin seed packets and a lesson plan on pumpkins and your teacher is set for a fun, interactive lesson next fall!
How about a beautiful book mark like this one from etsy wrapped around an ag friendly book or two? The Beef Princess of Practical County by Michelle Houts and Little Joe by Sandra Neil Wallace are two of our favorites for young readers.
I love the idea of a Starbucks gift card (which EVERYONE likes), along with a free dairy ag mag from your local county farm bureau. Many teachers don’t even realize the free ag resources at their fingertips!
A thumbprint bee coffee mug or planter could be a fun way to get your student in on the action. Make this up with some quick yellow paint and a black sharpie … and share these amazing pollinator classroom resources!
And if you really REALLY liked this teacher, invite her to your farm or set up a summer appointment to visit the farmers market together! These farmer invitations are adorable and seeing your little munchkin is sure to brighten her summer!
