A few years back, I came across the Dr. Seuss Gradation Gift idea on pinterest. In short, this father had all his daughter’s teachers from k-12 sign the book Oh, The Places You’ll Go! On high school graduation night, he presented the book to his daughter with all the teacher’s notes from every school year. Immediately after reading the idea, I ordered Oh, The Places You’ll Go! I sent the book into Lucas’ Kindergarten teacher in a large manila envelope with a note asking his teacher to sign the book. Since then, I have purchased books for my other two children and each year I ask one of the special area teacher’s to sign the book as well.
Dr. Seuss Gradation Gift
This plan ahead Dr. Seuss Gradation Gift can be signed by other people besides just the teacher. This year, I am going to also ask Mollie’s dance teacher and the kids’ piano teacher as well. I just love going back each year and reading what the teachers wrote about my kids and I know that some day, my kids are going to LOVE this gift! This is the note that I placed in the folder. Wouldn’t it be cute to even add a gift card or end of the year thank you for the teacher! It’s not to late to order Oh, The Places You’ll Go!
And you know what? Don’t just stop at teachers- why not ask the dance teacher, basketball coach, baseball coach, piano teacher- heck, ask anyone who has made an impression on your kids’ life. They will thank you some day!
