My class throws a shower for our student teacher at the end of the term. I secretly invite the parents to contribute anything the student teacher might be able to use. I send home a suggestion list that includes a range of ideas from stickers to books. I like to give a book of poetry. One parent will usually offer to serve cake and ice cream and the kids present the student teacher with the gifts. The shower is a great ending to a year of learning.
