I hung the sign up Monday Night in our Teacher Lounge and went to school Tuesday during the day and the teachers had already started eating the candy. Those of you that have done this. How do you keep the Teachers from eating the candy the first day you hang it up. Most of the Teachers hadn't even read it before piece were missing.

We did the poster with the candy and put it in the Teacher's Lounge. Then, with all of the extra candy (because you only use one on the sign, so you will have lots left over), we put it in bowls next to the sign for them to eat. That way they left the candy on the sign alone. This worked great! Hope this helps.

Tomorrow is Talent Show day for my daughter's class. I searched online for a teacher appreciation poem that my daughter could read. I love that I found this candy poem! I switched it around a little so that it would be from her and her class instead of parents. Thank you all for the idea! We are going to put the whole thing on a poster board for her.

You are worth a MINT for all you have taught us this year! You should get 100 GRAND every PAYDAY!
We know that sometimes we act like AIRHEADS, NERDS or like we are from MARS. But you have brought us such ALMOND JOY teaching us about all those WHATCHAMACALLITS!
Some days we have told you lots of WHOPPERS and MOUNDS of NUTRAGEOUS stories, but you never called us DUMDUMS or SUGARBABIES or said we had to be from the MILKYWAY. You are the REISEN we are all SMARITES. You are a LIFESAVER and a SWEETTART!
Have an EXTRA, CAREFREE summer!!

Since the teachers get quite a few candies at V-Day, and we spoil them with a chocolate fountain and other calorie-laden treats during Teacher Appreciation Week, this year we did something different.

Using phrases from a similar poem, we put a basket of candy each morning in the mailroom with a sign posted to it from the poem. For example, one days was a cute basket filled w/ Smarties & a sign saying "Thanks for making our kids such "SMARTIES".

We did this each day for the first week of school and felt that every teacher has to go to the mail/copy room, but only some go into the lounge. I think we spent less than $50 for a staff of 100 and they loved a little daily reminder of our appreciation to start off the school year!

I am a teacher and when my kids did this for me I thought it was adorable! I did eat the candy off of it, but I puffed the wrappers back up and taped them back where they came from...the kids had no idea I even ate it :)
