Making Your Message More Meaningful

Here are our top tips-

1- Make it personal. Use their name, include your child's name. Write informally, as if you were talking to them- it doesn't need to be rigid and formal. 

2- Get specific- did they do something particularly brilliant this year? Did their delivery of the 8 times table blow your child's mind?! Did their kindness when your child was going through hard times make the world of difference? Adding more specific details will help your card to stand out against the sea of generic "Thanks for being my teacher" messages.

3- If your child is willing, get them to write the message (with your help, of course!) or, get them to draw a picture or sign their own name. Extra cute points, right there!
