End of School Year Teacher Appreciation Gifts
Even though my children will be continuing through the summer on a few subjects (Math, Science, and maybe some History/Geography) all of their other classes are coming to an end for the school year, before we move on to Golf Camp, Swimming Lessons, and all sorts of other summertime fun!
This year was our first year participating in a homeschool charter school. I was hesitant to join in the fall
, but it truly was an answer to prayer and ended up being such a huge blessing for our family. In addition to using our “allotment” to pay for hockey, piano lessons, most of our consumables, and even printer ink, we had the best
teacher coming to our home once a week for four hours (one hour for each of the children enrolled) to help. Cynthia was amazing. My little ones would climb up and sit on her lap while she listened to the girls practice reading aloud, she worked with all of them wherever I needed her help (Writing With Ease, First Language Lessons, Spelling, Math, etc), greatly increased my children’s confidence in writing/journaling, and even helped us plant a garden
! Over the year she became a dear friend, and I always enjoy our Wednesday morning visits.
Since today was her last day for this school year we decided to make her gifts from each of her “students.” I found all sorts of fun ideas online and thought I’d share the ones the kids decided to make for her this year, along with their handmade thank you cards. I also picked up all the supplies for them to make gifts for their other teacher too! 😉

Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
