Teacher Appreciation Writing Inspiration

In honor of Teacher Appreciation week, I thought the Writing Inspiration this week should be about teachers.

Poem: "How to Torture your Teacher" by Bruce Lansky
This is a cute poem that students will enjoy.  Why not have students brain storm what they think drives their teachers crazy and write their own "How to Torture My Teacher" poem?

Quote:   The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. ~William Arthur Ward

Picture:  Ask your students to consider creative ways to say thank you.  This applies to not just teachers, but Moms, too.  What about friends and classmates?
