Teacher Appreciation Week Ideas in the Era of COVID-19
Teacher Appreciation Week is here (May 4th – 8th, 2020). When the COVID-19 outbreak hit the U.S., teachers immediately changed their entire lesson plan to work for distance learning overnight. Our teachers deserve admiration more than ever before. Today is the perfect time to start thinking of Teacher Appreciation Week ideas to recognize teachers for everything they do. With Americans sheltering in place, many teachers won’t receive the usual celebrations, gifts, and support they’ve received in past years. While you’re social distancing, you may not be able to visit the special teacher in your life and give them a gift. Fortunately, we have Teacher Appreciation Week tips for you to show teachers you value them in the era of COVID-19.
Check out a few of these #TeacherAppreciationWeek ideas that will help you give thanks to your favorite teacher from afar:
1. Start an Online Funding Account for School Supplies You may not be able to hand your favorite teacher a gift card or cash for school supplies while social distancing. However, you can make a tax-deductible donation to a K-12 teacher who needs distance learning supplies, or to stock their classroom when school reopens.
A great way to do this is with AdoptAClassroom.org. The teacher will receive 100% of the donation you give to support their classroom!
2. Show Appreciation on Social Media Giving teachers a shout out on social media is a great way to show your appreciation for the hard work they do. Consider making a post thanking the teachers in your life.
We hope that these ideas help get your creative juices flowing to show your appreciation for the teachers in your life. WE LOVE OUR TEACHERS! #ExcelUrgentCare
