Celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week with These Deals & a TpT Sale!

This year, Teacher Appreciation Week is being celebrated while some teachers in the U.S. and throughout the world are still teaching students remotely and some teachers have returned to in-person classroom teaching.  Whatever your particular situation, the 2021-2021 school year has been been like no other.  Hopefully, educators and students can return to a semblance of normality at the start of the next school year.

(Updated Monday, May 3, 2021)

For flyers, certificates, and social media images to promote Teacher Appreciation Week, check out the National PTA materials on their website.

Only a few of the chain restaurants that used to offer deals during this week did so last year but there are more this year.  Given the huge economic losses restaurants faced (and still face), I think it's really nice they are giving some special deals to educators in 2021.  You can find a list of some restaurants and other businesses offering special deals below.

Also, I am pleased to let you know that TeachersPayTeachers is having a sale on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 4th and 5th, 2021.  For the past several years, TpT has had a sitewide sale during Teacher Appreciation Week and this year it is again.  In fact, many of the teacher-authors, including me, have been converting existing resources and creating new ones to try and help teachers out in this new normal.  As usual, all the resources in my store will be 20% off.  Please use the promo code ThankYou21 for an additional 5% off at checkout, which means you can purchase all my resources at a 25% savings.  Other TpT stores will also be on sale for up to 25% off, depending on the store.

Wishing you all a wonderful Teacher Appreciation Week!
