Teachers love getting letters from their students. I get several emails a week from former students. Did you know teachers even save these letters sometimes? I do—they’re on the inside of my cabinet doors near my desk. I call this my “Doors of Fame.” I like to open the doors and reread them and remember wonderful times with wonderful students.
What should you say to your teacher in your note?
· You can start off by saying thank you for a wonderful school year.
· Then go on to mention a few specific things that your teacher did that made the year so great. Did he make learning fun? Were there lots of hands on activities? Was there a favorite read aloud book that you enjoyed?
· The important thing is to let your teacher know exactly what you liked about the school year.
· You can include a drawing, if you wish, or a picture of you as a remembrance.
Go for it! Write in your neatest handwriting and be sure to proofread! (I recommend writing a draft first.) Your final copy should be your ultimate best work. After all, your note may end up on the “Doors of Fame!”
