Best Reading Teacher Gifts (that aren’t a #1 Teacher Mug)

I know a LOT of teachers, of all different grades. And let me tell you how many of the SAME teacher gifts they have. (Mugs, Tumblers, Pictures of Students, Picture Frames, Apple Statues, you get the picture) But if you REALLY want to show your appreciation for your kid’s teacher, why not get them something unique and useful. (You really only need like…4 mugs, and that’s being generous. Seriously, everyone, STOP WITH THE MUGS ALREADY!) Here is the BookwyrmMama list of better Teacher gifts!

Cook With a Book: Strega Nona!

Every once in a while, a book resonates with you. Whether it’s full of life advice, it’s funny, the protagonist is relate-able, it’s full of magic, or something else, the book strikes you to the core. When a picture book does that, it’s easy to replace it’s profound effect with new memories and feelings as you grow. I always come back to the books I once loved. Guppy has read nearly every series I did when I was her age (And even a bit older! Over achiever…), and now I’m reading the same books I read to her to Goober. Hopefully, he loves them as much as I do.

Easing Into Reading For FUN!

Guppy wasn’t always such an avid reader. She used to HATE reading! At one point, my own mama (Affectionately dubbed “Rachel’s Mom” by Guppy…as in “Rachel, Guess what I did at Rachel’s Mom’s house this weekend!”) told me “You need to get her to love reading as much as you did.” When I asked her how she fostered that love of reading in me she said “I don’t know. Just read to her, I guess.”
Long story short “Just read to her” did not work all by itself. But here are some ideas that did for your own reluctant readers.
