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?
