FREE Teacher Appreciation Printables

School is coming! Remember these?…

Once again, chickabug has pulled off an adorable FREE printable set, exclusively for HowDoesShe readers.

The best part,… this little mini-pendant! REALLY?! Eek! I picture stringing the mini-pendant, putting it in my kid’s back pack, and having them quickly hang it on their teacher’s desk.

Sometimes a simple note is the best gift a teacher can get. Make sure they are handwritten with love by your little ‘student’. They will be cherished.teacher appreciation printables

These printable circles can be used for so many different things. Cupcake toppers, gift tags, or even on an apple. What’s the saying? An apple a day, just might get me an ‘A’?! Heck, it’s worth a try! 😉teacher appreciation printables

Make sure to take the time to thank the wonderful teachers in our children’s lives. Teacher Appreciation week is May 2nd – 6th.

      It would be so great if they could and a "S" to the mini bunting so it could be hung in the teachers' lounge or office at the school to thank all of the teachers!

      At my school it is a huge deal to not say teacher and staff appreciation. I wish it had teacher and staff appreciation instead of just teacher. I threw a luncheon and wrote "teacher luncheon" and all the office staff, yard supervisors, etc wouldn't attend because I OBVIOUSLY meant for it to exclude them. Super, super cute-I wish I could use them!@!!

      Love these, but when I downloaded them, the polka dot backgrounds were all jumbled up and didn't look right. Is there any other way I can download these or receive them via email so the polka dots look normal? Also, if you add an (s) for the banner, could I get that as well? This will be so cute for our teachers in September!
