It's the End of the Year as We Know It

If you're not counting the days until school's out, rest assured; your kids are. You know who else is counting? The teachers.

So as the days dwindle down, it's time for you to come up with a token of appreciation for all the learning and laughing your child's teacher has faithfully provided since the fall. We asked a few teachers about their favorite end-of-year gifts, and here's what we found out:

Notes! Yep, elementary-school teachers really are that sweet.  Their overwhelming favorite thing to receive was a hand-written note or hand-drawn picture from a child. They really do keep them, by the way. And it's always a nice touch to send the teacher a note yourself, perhaps outlining some of the ways your child has grown under his/her tutelage.

Gift Cards. Office-supply store cards are a good bet, since they allow hard-working teachers the chance to enhance their room's supplies. Also popular were gift cards to restaurants or coffee shops, especially ones right near school. Consider pitching in with another famiy or two.

Photos. A framed of the teacher with your child or with the class makes a nice reminder of past school years. And lots of teachers like to display these reminiscinces on their desks or bookshelves in coming years.

So there you go: three ideas for teacher gifts they're sure to love. Now get to it--you haven't got many days left. Want to know exactly how many? Ask your kid.
