I am a teacher and this week at my school was Teacher Appreciation Week. Every day this week we got a small gift of appreciation. This got me thinking – showing someone you care doesn’t have to cost a fortune and the little things really can be the best. The only things that we received that are not in the photo are a muffin and a boerewors roll!
On Monday we were given a muffin followed by post it notes on Tuesday with a cute note on them. On Wednesday we received a packet of peanuts, also with a note on it. At break time on Thursday we were given boerewors rolls and today we received a chocolate. They were all such thoughtful gifts! You can tell that a lot of effort and thought went into them. The school did not have to do anything like this but they did and I loved it!
One of the children in my class gave this gift to me today. For no reason at all. She just arrived at school with this gift and handed it over to me. It actually just made my day that she would think of me outside of school and bring something like this to me.
There are so many things that you can do for someone to make them happy or bring a smile to their faces and they really don’t have to cost a lot of money.
Here are just 5 little things that you can do to make someone smile:
- Write a letter to someone
- Bake them some biscuits
- Give them a hug
- Tell them that you appreciate them
- Offer to make tea/coffee for someone
What are some little things that you have done for someone recently? Or something that someone else has done for you. Let me know in the comments below!
