7. Art Supplies & Stickers
You don’t need to buy your teachers enough art supplies to outfit their whole classroom, but they are always in need of basics like crayons, colored pencils, paint brushes and stickers. You can help their classroom be brighter with $10 worth of some of these always needed supplies, and you will get nothing but appreciation in return!
8. Classroom Library Books
Most teachers have their own miniature library’s in their classrooms for free reading time ad a great gift would be to purchase books to add to their collection. You can go in with other parents and purchase enough books for each child to make it an even better gift. Nothing is better than giving the gift of knowledge!
9. Educational Games
Rainy days mean that teachers need to get creative when their students can’t go outside for recess or lunch. They can always use additions to their stash of games, especially educational ones. You can find very affordable games on Amazon and your teacher will thank you again and again, especially if you live in a rainy climate!
10. Treasure Box Rewards
If you have young children, chances are their teachers use some sort of reward or “treasure box” system in the classroom. It takes time, money and effort to keep one full so help your teacher out by supplying them with some small and inexpensive items like sticky hands, stamps, plastic bracelets, rings and anything else a young child might love to earn in a treasure box. It’s one less thing they have to supply themselves!
