For teachers day (I think the first or second Tues in May) I try to give the teacher a scrapbook that I have all the kids add pages to - we made if for the 1st grader but I still am working on the 5th grade one. I tell the kids what size to make the pages and how many they can add and they send back poems, photos, why my teacher is great, pictures and they are anywhere from award winning scrapbook pages to something done on the back on an envelope. The teachers have loved them because the kids each personalize the pages. It takes a bit of work to get them all back but the smiles at the end are worth it. The 2-3 grade teacher kept the books on the book shelf in her room and the kids would go and look through it all the time, even the next year it was one of the favorites.

The lesson from Charlie Brown: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care.
