Happy Monday! Today is indeed a happy Monday over this way. It’s the first day of May, which means we’re in the last month of the school year. Summer is just around the corner and friends, I am so ready! This week also starts teacher appreciation week at our school. Our PTA has a week filled with fun things to celebrate the teachers, which is much appreciated and looked forward to.
As a mom, I try to celebrate AG’s teachers as much as possible. Whether it’s with a coffee delivery on a Friday morning or something cute I found from the dollar bins at Target. Something little just to let them know I appreciate what they do and value them.
This week, I decided to add a little extra gift on a few of the days where there wasn’t something bigger planned for AG’s teachers.
The first little gift AG will bring are pens with a cute “Just WRITE for me” tag. One thing about us teachers is we LOVE school supplies. I personally have a pen obsession, along with post its and brightly colored organizers. The list goes on and on. If you follow any teachers on social media, I’m sure you’ll get a kick out of the comments and excitement a new pack or pens can bring or even scented markers. It’s the little things!
A few weeks back, one of my students brought in a new pack of CANDY POP Flair pens. I was instantly obsessed with the new colors and added them to my Target list for the weekend. The colors are perfect for spring and summer, I’m thinking I will need a backup pack just incase any go missing….
When thinking about teacher appreciation this week, I decided on the same pack of pens for AG’s teacher. Yesterday, I designed a simple little tag to tape on the pack of pens and it’s good to go. Nothing big and easy to throw together, hopefully her teacher will appreciate these new colors as much as I did.
Another idea for the “WRITE” gifts is putting pens in a small container and tying the tag to the front with some pretty twine. Target dollar spot always has cute containers for $1, most of mine I find at home from old projects.
The container I used for this one, I bought almost a year ago from Target. I had great intentions of making my own sugar scrub for a gift- which never happened. This gift is a little fancier and cost a tad more depending on the pens used. The ones in this picture are my favorite pens of all time. Yes, more than the Flair pens. They’re the Paper Mate Inkjoy Gel Pens. I have some at work and at home. They’re my favorite for grading papers so easy to write with. If you’re a pen person, these are a must have.
There you have a few different ways to use these just WRITE tags. If teacher appreciation has already passed at your school, this would be a great gift for the end or the beginning of the school year.

If you have any pens you love, please share! I love finding new favorites.
