Your Ways to Say Thank You

By | January 3, 2016

Thank you for sharing your ideas on ways to thank classroom volunteers. Here are a few to add to your list. Enjoy!

1. Use a candy or gum name that works as a compliment and give out a sample of that sweet treat:

     Starbursts     “You’re a Star, a Burst of energy in my classroom

     Mints     Thanks for your commit-“mint”, encourage-“mint”, involve-“mint”,  helping to create a nice environ-“mint”

     Extra     Thanks for the EXTRA help you provide for my students

2. Personalize a note with student fingerprints or palm prints used in a shape to match the season: tree blossoms, valentine wreath, winter snowflake palms.

3.  Plant marigodl or other spring seeds in terra cotta pots and when they sprout, give one to each volunteer with a note (use the words sprout, plant, grow, blossom in the attached note)

4. Ask each student to write one word that reminds them of the volunteer. Print them on paper leaves, stems, and flower petals to build a flowery thank you card.

5.  Invite the volunteers in for a short thank you program where the students share ways the volunteers help them (sentences, poems, songs).
