PBS Supersisters Great Day of Gratitude Has Arrived

The Great Day of Gratitude is May 5, 2010

Welcome to the Supersisters Great Day of Gratitude! Today is the day we honor teachers everywhere for the sacrifices they make every day for our kids.

If you are still looking for ideas for things you can do to show the teachers how much you care, how about handwritten notes to the teacher or a professional letter of recommendation and appreciation?

Are you crafty? Vickie from Craft Apparent shows us how to make these adorable Teacher's Pots that are sure to bring a smile to any child's face as they make it and any teacher's face to receive such a lovely (and super easy to make) tiny pot.

Gina from Booklights has some great book ideas for sparking conversations with your kids about gratitude beyond this Great Day of Gratitude and our very own Patience has some of her own ideas for teaching your kids the importance of gratitude.

We made it really easy for you to tell us how your kids made their teachers feel special today.

If you have a blog:
Badge: just cut and paste the following into your Great Day of Gratitude blog post and then come back and share the link to your blog so we can check out what you did today! Be sure to share you link to your Great Day of Gratitude post (and not just your blog).

If you didn't blog about your own Great Day of Gratitude:
You did do something fabulous to show our teachers how much you care or you don't have school age children but you have a favorite teacher you would like to honor. Please let us know in the comments. We can't wait to hear!

Thanks so much for being part of our Supersisters Great Day of Gratitude and we know this is going to be a fabulous one!

Thank you for posting this idea. My childrens' teachers love my girls and I am so thankful every time they go the extra mile to do something special for them. Today, the Pre-K 4 teacher planned a surprise Cinco de Mayo party for the class and our preschool teachers lavish love and attention on everyone in their class. I will have to think of a little something to bring them when I pick up the girls today.

Great idea! Left a post over on my site talking about my son's first grade teacher whom I love and cherish!
