Last Valentine's Day, Traci Curtis wanted to do something to show her appreciation to her daughter's kindergarten teacher, and decided to also include the entire class.
A few weeks before the holiday, she sent three paper hearts home with each student and asked them -- and their parents --to write a brief note of thanks on each.
Then she filled what she called, "The Jar Of Joy" (a plastic jar with pink and red hearts, with a snug lid) with enough notes that the teacher could read one per day until the school year ended.
This would be a great idea for Valentine's Day, and not just for your child's teacher. I think that you you could do this for a co-worker, friend, family member or even have your daughters friends write how much they appreciate her! (which I think that I will do for mine this year!) oh, and a few gals in my homeschool meet up group!
