Poems have a way of conveying feelings in a special way.
They have a bigger and longer-lasting impact than a typical thank-you note, it’s certainly a nice gesture that’ll not be forgotten.

Tips for Writing Your Own Poem
Poetry isn’t as hard as most people think; and no, poems do not have to rhyme!
If you want to write your own poem for a preschool teacher, here are some tips to help you get started:
- Start by jotting down some of the things you appreciate about your child’s teacher.
- Think of specific qualities and moments that you’d like to highlight in your poem.
- Be creative with your words and choose powerful imagery to convey your feelings.
- Choose a rhyme scheme that feels right for the poem; it doesn’t need to be traditional.
- Read your poem out loud and make any adjustments until you’re happy with it.
- Share it with the teacher and thank them for all that they do.
It’s really as simple as that.
What I can tell you is that a teacher is going to be super happy to receive a poem, it doesn’t matter so much what’s in it.
It’s the thought and the gesture that counts, so just enjoy the process of writing it!
Why Poems Are Great for Showing Your Appreciation
Poems are one of the best ways to express your thanks to someone in a heartfelt and meaningful way.
They provide a unique opportunity to capture feelings and emotions that would otherwise be difficult to express.
The beauty of poetry is that it can be adapted to accommodate any message you want to give, so whether your preschool teacher deserves a thank you for being a role model, mentor, friend or teacher, you can tailor it to fit your needs.
Poems are also great because they can be kept as a memento of your appreciation and can remind the recipient of how much you care whenever they look at it.
In addition, many teachers will frame and hang these kinds of mementos in the classroom or home – a lasting reminder of your appreciation.
At the end of the day, writing and gifting a poem is a great way to make a preschool teacher (or anyone) feel valued and appreciated.
It only takes a few minutes and can make a world of difference!
