Teacher Appreciation Posters

Teacher Appreciation is coming up!  One of the things we do in our Elementary School is volunteer to make posters for the teachers and staff.  I had to stop myself at 4!!!  I only have 1 in elementary school, and in addition to my son's teacher, I picked the Librarian, SPED Teachers and a 6th grade teacher.

I used my Gypsy and a 12x24 mat to line up my letters and use the template (leftover piece) to adhere my letters perfectly!  All of my posters were inspired by Pinterest!!

First up is the poster for Tanner's teacher.  Tanner picked this one out.  I used Plantin' Schoolbook for the font and Hannah Montana for the butterflies.  I wrote each student's name on a butterfly and added some stickles.

For our SPED Teachers, I used this quote that I saw on Pinterest.  I used Hannah Montana for the font.  I  hid the circle inside the "a" and added a heart also from Hannah Montana.  I grouped the heart and the"a" together.

I added four hearts sized to 3.77 inches for the teachers.  I used Nate's ABC's for the teacher names.

Mr. Rodningen is one of our 6th grade teachers.  He loves rocks and displays them in the window sill of his classroom.  Every morning our children have the option to participate in walking club.  When it is cold, rainy or snowy, we walk inside the building.  Recently we walked inside and I noticed his rocks for the first time.  I saw this poster idea on Pinterest but did not think it was a good choice for the female teachers.....but it was perfect for Mr. R!!  No one had signed up to make his poster yet so I took it!!

I used Batman for the font.  I tore and inked paper to look like rocks.

I had soooo much fun making this one!!!  I realize that school librarians are now Media Specialists and they do so much more than read books, but I could NOT resist this design!!!  

I started out with  7 pieces of white cardstock and painted them red, green, lt. green, orange, purple and lt. purple.  I added some white and darker shades of each color to create a finger paint look.

I cut out the letters from Nate's ABCs and traced them on the back of the papers and cut them out.  The heart is hand drawn.

I traced part of the heart and sketched the caterpillar on the side.  I hand cut out the pieces of the caterpillar from the green and light green papers.

Most of you know that I have an in-home daycare.  I currently have 5 (of my 8) families who are teachers.  I love our teachers and truly believe they have the most important job - shaping our future leaders, managers, presidents, etc.  They work long after their day is done and are on several committees, mentor programs, morning/afternoon duties - they give so much!  This is the least I can do to give a little back!!

For all of you teachers reading this post - Happy Teacher Appreciation Day!!

I am linking up my posters at Pink By Deisgn!!
