Here are 5 “Punny” back to school gift ideas for teachers to give to their students and team members!

1. “School is here! Time to Concentrate!“- Orange or O.J. (buy from your local grocery store)
Attach a cute note with this phrase for your students along with an orange, a clementine, or a bottle of orange juice. What better way than a healthy treat to start off the school year!


2. “You’re a One of a Kind Sharp Kid”- Pencils- Buy on Amazon
Let your students know their potential for this new year with pencils and a cute card letting them know how “sharp” they are!

3. “You color My World, Star Student!” – Crayons, Colored Pencils, or Markers- Buy on Amazon
Your students should know that this year, you will be doing everything you can to help them succeed. Give them some art supplies to let them know they “color your world!”


4. “In My Book, We Make a Great Team!”- Spiral Notebooks- Buy on Amazon
This card is great to give to your team members to let them know you look forward to working with them this year. You could also use this for students if you want to teach your class to work as a “team!”


5. “Glad You’re On My Team During Back to School crunch time!”- Crunch Candy Bars- Buy on Amazon
This card is perfect to give to your team members. Back to school can be a very stressful time. If you have team members who have your back, let them know! You can give them this card with a candy bar for them when they need a pick me up during this stressful time as well!
