This year, Teacher Appreciation Week is being celebrated from Monday, May 8th - Friday, May 12th. We work alongside our students’ teachers throughout the year to fill in gaps and provide support - and we couldn’t be more appreciative of their efforts. Let’s shower our teachers with all of the appreciation they can stand!
Write a Thank You Card or Letter to Your Child’s Favorite Teacher
This is a great activity for you and your child! Use our template or one of the thousands available online to create a Thank You Card and let your teacher know they’re appreciated. You might even consider reaching out to past teachers through email or Facebook!
Nominate your Child’s Favorite Teacher for an Award
During Teacher Appreciation Week, there are tons of opportunities to nominate teachers for awards, gift baskets, and more! Check out this giveaway from SignUpGenius, and make sure to visit our Facebook and Instagram pages from 5/8-5/12 to nominate your teacher for a special Mathnasium giveaway.
Tell Stories About Your Favorite Teacher
Hold a family story time and talk about your time in school - and the teachers who helped you succeed! Your kids will love to learn more about your childhood, and this can be a great bonding opportunity.
Students can also ask Mathnasium staff about their favorite teachers this week (or any week, we love to talk about them!) during their visits. We’ve shared a couple down below as well! ⬇️
"One of my favorite teachers was my 5th grade teacher, Mr. Fike. He was a classically trained opera singer, and he would frequently start singing about whatever topic we were learning about, if he noticed student's attention began to wane. He had a booming voice, so it was always a wake-up call for anybody who was dozing off! He also introduced me to the 24 game, and encouraged me to join the after school club that we had at our school where we would compete against classmates. It really helped me with a lot of my fluency for addition/subtraction/multiplication/division, and now I get to share my passion for that game with students at the center, and in the community!"
