Teacher Appreciation Gift and Poem



Pin It! 
It is so hard to believe that my baby boy is almost done with kindergarten.  I have no idea how it happened so quickly.  But it did, and he did so well.  I am so proud of him and how far he has come since school started.  He couldn't say a full sentence clearly when school started and now he never stops talking!  He has also been below grade level all year until this last progress report.  At his end of the year IEP meeting everyone was in agreement that he will be promoted to 1st grade (ON grade level for math and reading!) and that he has made amazing progress and reached all of his goals.

I have his teacher to thank mostly for this.  Or a few of them really lol.  But his actual class teacher is wonderful.  I knew she was before he even went because she was my kindergarten teacher too!  And Chris'!  And several of our nephew's and niece's too!  She has made a world of difference in Blaze's life and I am so thankful he had such an awesome start to his school career.  SO for her end of the year gift I made her the apple cozy you see in the pic above and will put an apple in there.  I also changed up the When You Thought  I Wasn't Looking poem and made it personal from Blaze to her.  Let me know what you think about it.  I am going to type it out on pretty paper and frame it for her.


When you thought I wasn't looking,
you put faces on the chart for me,
and I finally understood what it meant.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
You displayed my art,
and it made me want to make more.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
you kept my routines the same for me,
and I knew school was safe and fun.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
you explained things to me more simply,
and I knew that I could learn too.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
you smiled and hugged me, but not too tight,
and I knew you cared for me.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
you cared,
and I wanted to do my best for you.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
you made kindergarten amazing for me,
and I knew that I was smart.

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I looked,
and I want to thank you for all the little things you did,
when you thought I wasn't looking.
