As I get ready to go home for our winter break, I like to wrap things up and make sure that my lessons are ready to go for when I return in January. I don’t like the nagging feeling of work hanging over me while I’m on vacation. One thing that I used to forget to do before the holiday break was write my thank you cards. I created these free thank you cards to make sure that never happened again.
These cards help me model gratitude for my students. Sending thank you cards lets families know that I am appreciative of their act of kindness. I hope that thanking others for their kindess is something that my students will do.
How Can These Thank You Cards Help Me?
These thank you cards are free. You can download them, print, and copy them right at work. I fill mine out before I go home for winter break and put them in each child’s folder. It is one less thing that I have to worry about when I return to work in January. It’s also nice not to have to spend money on them, as there are so many other things I’m already paying for this time of year.
Are These Quick to Make?
Absolutely! I generally am able to fill these out in the morning while my students are completing their morning activities. I quickly write a sentence thanking each family for their gift, and wishing them a wonderful new year. It’s quick, and will make you feel better once you’ve completed it. You can download these free holiday thank you cards here.
