Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up, and if you're looking for a way to celebrate your teachers, you've come to the right place.
We're all living in unusual circumstances due to COVID19. Many schools work from a virtual environment or operating under unusual hours, with some kids allowed at school and other kids attending class virtually.
With everything that is happening globally, it can be hard to know what to do for teacher appreciation week. But have no fear, we've got you covered!
VidDay is the perfect solution to help you create the most beautiful and meaningful video slideshow. With just a click of a button, you can invite everyone.
The Best Teacher Appreciation Gift
It is time to say "Thank You" to the exceptional teachers that you know. Let teachers past and present know you appreciate them for all that they do.
Get Students Involved
Tell your teacher how much you've appreciated them this year and everything they have done for you. Give them appreciation with kind words, hold up signs with messages of gratitude, or even add text cards in the video with messages from other teachers and the Principal.
Unsure of what to say in a video? Here are some ideas to help get your juices flowing:
Share a story on how your teacher made a positive impact on your life.
We know you listen to your teachers. What's a famous line that your teacher always repeats in class? Repeat it back to them!
It's "dress like your teacher day" – dress up as your teacher in your video.
Grab your paper and markers — write a message to say "thank you" to your teachers.
Or, just a simple "thank you." It's a message that teachers don't often hear.
Have Faculty Get In on the Fun
Gather all the staff together.
Get faculty from the cafeteria to the school library to show their appreciation and thanks to all teachers. Plus, you can even get the Principal or Vice-Principal to share their kind words with that fantastic teacher. Teachers hearing the kind words from their students, boss, and coworkers will make them feel so appreciated during these challenging times.
You can even create an appreciation video for other faculty in the school. It doesn't need to be just for teachers. Have students celebrating and thanking cafeteria staff, janitors, library staff, and more.
An Idea for Parent-Teacher Association
Suppose you need some ideas to bring to the following parent-teacher organization (PTO) or parent-teacher association (PTA) meeting. A video gift for teacher appreciation week is a great idea to bring up! Not only does it bring the students together to create something meaningful, but it gives thanks to the teachers who have worked so hard this year.
So at the next PTA/PTO meeting, you can bring up making a beautiful video montage for a gift for teacher appreciation or even graduation.
