Think about it. Outside of home your child spends the most time with their teacher and that is why the one person to know your child better than yourself is his/her teacher. In India, we celebrate Teachers’ Day on September 5th every year to honour our teachers for their selfless contribution in enriching the lives of every child they meet.
So this year why not engage your child in making something for their teacher that is easy to make, very useful. and something that will be appreciated.
