ThankYouTeacher Appreciation week isn’t until May this year so this is a bit early but really, is it ever too early to tell anyone “Thank You”?

As I worked on making a thank you note for the teachers in our local music teachers association, I found a new word cloud app online. It’s called “Tagxedo” – go ahead! Click on the link and check it out. It’s a lot like the other word cloud idea we shared here but this one let’s you choose a shape to form the words into.

Now you’ll probably come up with your own amazing word cloud but I wanted to share mine today with you. Just in case you are in a rush for something to print on a card for your piano teacher or to use the image for your own craft. I received a darling thank you card from one of my teen students this week – can I just say it made my busy week of teaching all worth it?! So if you have an extra minute today, try making your own teacher feel appreciated. Any little thing really will touch their hearts 🙂

Here’s the original image if you’d like to use mine! Have fun making your own too.
