Plant Flowers

This year for Teacher Appreciation Week, plant some flowers or a tree in honor of a teacher who really influenced your life in a positive way. If you have permission from your school, you could do this on school grounds. Or you could even bring in a potted plant for your classroom, for all of your classmates to enjoy. If you finished school long ago, think about sending flowers to your local elementary or high school--even if you don't personally know all of the teachers who work there, you can let them know you appreciate the good work they are doing in your community.

Benefits:

Letting others know we appreciate them is one of the most thoughtful kind acts we can do. And when we include planting flowers or a tree in that act of appreciation, we are also being kind to the earth!

Step It Up:

If you have some time, get permission before hand and see if you could also hold a ceremony honoring your teacher while you plant the flowers or tree. You could collect contributions from your classmates and have a plaque or memorial stone created to accompany the space you are planting. This could even be an annual event, each year honoring a different Teacher of the Year.

Keep It Simple:

Get your classmates together and present your teacher with a small potted plant or flowers for the classroom. Often flowers are much more affordable if you purchase the flowers to plant yourself, and they last a longer! Have fun picking out a specific plant or flower that reminds you of your teacher. Include a card signed by all your classmates letting your teacher know how much you appreciate him or her.
