Teachers Appreciation 2012 - Day Two

The Roses and Iris's are in full bloom around here, so many of the Room Parents are asking each of the kids to bring in a single flower from their garden to make a bouquet that the Teachers can enjoy all week during Teachers Appreciation.

Since our teacher is a Man - we decided to do something a little different.

Instead of flowers - we asked each of the kids to bring in a piece of fruit.  

 Little K contributed a crisp red apple - protected from bruising by a sweet crochet Apple Cozy (made by my Mum).

We have a big basket waiting in the classroom to gather all the fruity bounty.  I made a sign using Wordle with all the cheesy fruit sayings I could think of:

ORANGE  you grand
You are a PEACH of a person
You're one in a MELON
You are the top BANANA
You're the BERRY best
You're a GRAPE teacher
Were PLUM crazy about you

and added the teachers name and all the students names.

The basket was spruced up with some ribbons. 

His favorite colors are Blue and Purple - so you will be seeing that color theme repeated all week.  


  1. Hi friend! I've missed you.

    What a great gift, and I adore that apple cozy!

  2. What a cute idea Karina! Love the tag you did using Wordle...and that you used his favorite colors. My son has a man teacher too...I might need to copy this idea for the end of the year!

  3. LOVE the apple cozy!!! This year we didn't do a fruit basket. I was sad. That's my favorite day. I love when people bring in things like pineapples. So fun!
