I always find myself with a bit of time on my hands for the last week of school, particularly when we have to make up a bunch of snow days.

Making some thank you cards, to show appreciation for staff and others that have helped you through the year, is an educationally relevant activity, plus a great way to teach valuable life skills.

These quick, easy & fun "craftivities" are perfect for that, and especially fit in well for those schools who have taken part in a “bucket-filling” program.

I find that children are anxious to make something for these individuals, as they have really come to care for them.

Such simple acts of kindness, go a long way in touching an individual’s heart and making them feel truly appreciated.

Children feel good about themselves and are excited to share this “paper love”. What a nice way to end the year.

The packet includes:
* A “Thanks A Bunch” bouquet of flowers to color. Glue your students’ photo inside the center of the flowers.
* A “Thanks A Bunch” balloon bouquet to color and use for the cover of your card.
* Another cover option with children holding iPads spelling out “Thank you”. There’s a pattern with 2-on-a-page, as well as one that’s full size.

* 2 templates for a “Thank you for all you do!” (stained glass looking) card. One pattern has 2-on-a-page the other is full size.
* A black and white “You’ve touched our lives with kindness” thank you poem that I wrote.
* A color copy of the poem. Glue this inside your card.

* 6-on-a-page heart template that says: “Thank you! Thank you! You’re so nice, simply had to say it twice.” To use to glue inside your card(s) if you desire.
* A “Thank you” acrostic poem
* A completed sample of the poem for you to share

* 3-on-a-page “Thank you for…” writing prompt bookmarks.
* 2 writing prompt worksheets that say “Thank you for…” on the header.
* 2 more “Thank you for…” writing prompt worksheets featuring a girl and a boy.

* A school bus thank you card.
* 9-large, square “stained glass” letter templates that spell out “Thank you!” Have your students hold them up and take a group shot to make your card extra special.
* A "Thank you 'berry' much!" strawberry card. (Especially perfect for school staff and volunteers.)

* A thank you poster-card for the teacher.
* A note home to parents about the teacher card. (This can be done by a parent, aide or classroom volunteer.)
* Complete directions and sample photographs.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a simply fabulous end-of-the-year!
May you too, feel appreciated for all of your hard work, especially with lots of hugs, smiles, and smarter kiddos that have left plenty of heart prints. You have definitely made a difference!
