3. A Cup of Coffee on Me
A Cup of Coffee on Me:
The weather is turning colder,
there’s frost on the ground.
The holidays are great,
cheer is all around.
I wanted to take a second,
to thank you for teaching me.
I hope you enjoy your time off,
and a cup of coffee or tea!
This is a great teacher appreciation poem to celebrate the season. It is fun to personalize with a gift card to your teacher’s favorite coffee shop or tea house.
4. Teachers are Like Candles
Teachers are like Candles:
A candle is like a teacher, who first provides the spark.
That kindles love of learning, in children’s minds and hearts.
Like a burning candle, Teachers light the mind,
Enriching lives and futures, By the sharing of their time.
So when you light this candle, May its glow convey to you
Warm appreciation…For all the things you do.
Make sure to include a fragrant candle for your teacher. The poem/candle gift is not only a thoughtful gesture but also something that your teacher can enjoy throughout the season.
5. A Fun Holiday Break
A Fun Holiday Break:
I’m a little snowman,
I have no hat.
You are my teacher,
and I like that.
When it’s time for winter break,
We just shout out:
“Open those doors
and let us out!”
It may may not be a surprise that teachers may feel the same sentiment as the students with this fun poem. This poem truly captures the excitement of winter break plus a few words of teacher appreciation.
It just takes a second to print one of these teacher appreciation poems but the kind words will mean a lot to your favorite teacher. On that note, we wish you and all of the teachers out there a very merry holiday season.
