Using the #MyTeacherRocks Activity to Show Appreciation
This year, as part of Teacher Appreciation Day, we are honored to offer a simple, yet creative, activity for your students. The #MyTeacherRocks campaign is a social media-based activity for children and leaders to spread the word about why their teachers and education staff rock. By using smooth, light-colored rocks, students can write or draw a symbol of what makes their staff member special to them. And for those schools who do not wish to use actual rocks, we have provided rock printouts along with a detailed activity guide on a printable PDF document. If you choose to have your child or school participate in this activity, we encourage you to share images of your student and/or staff member with their rocks on your own social media page with the hashtag #MyTeacherRocks.
