Hi, I just wondered what you think of these words to put in a card from my daughter to her teacher.
She is moving up a class next term and will be leaving her first nursery class. The teacher is absoluitly fantastic and my daughter really loves her so it will be very sad. I have made a card with a photo of my daughter cuddeling her teacher, decorated with flowers. What do you think of these words for inside?

Dear Mrs ...
Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful start to my school life. You've held my hand, dried my tears and made my very first memories of school ones of happiness and laughter.
I am really going to miss you but will always remember the fun we've had in little ladies.
I am very privileged to have had you as my teacher and I hope I'll go on to make you proud.
With lots of love and thanks from .....

Please be honest if you don't like it or would change it a bit. Also feel free to correct spellings.blush Thanks.

don't write it from your daughter, write it from you ..

writing from the child is a bit pukey

little ladies ? is that the class name ?

'in little ladies'? Sounds like the toilets, explain please.

MaryAnnSingleton Tue 08-Jul-08 18:26:23

agree with twiglett btw - write it from you not dd - she can sign it of course

Agree with Twiglett - the teacher will appreciate the sentiment much more from you, and will appreciate your child's own words more than putting words in her mouth!

Bit ott imho especially since it is your words not your dd's.

Bit too mushy for me, each to their own.

MaryAnnSingleton Tue 08-Jul-08 18:27:13

please tell me the class isn't called little ladies

I think it is a little vomitagious but the sentiment is great. It gets a little poetic, but then I am a dry old hag.

Lol grin No it's not the toilets, it's the name for the first class of the nursery. It's a girls school. You have little ladies when they are 2, nursery then transition. I've never thought of my daughters class as a toilet before. That is soo funny!.

I think any teacher who teaches in a school with a class called little ladies will appreciate the sentiment.

I do think it is nice to stop and thank a teacher properly.

Twiglett Tue 08-Jul-08 18:32:10

they call 2 year olds 'little ladies'

<projectile vomits>

mummyloveslucy Tue 08-Jul-08 18:34:42

I am quite poetic really. I think her teacher will like it. (I hope)

MaryAnnSingleton Tue 08-Jul-08 18:34:49

yes, it is really nice to thank the teacher - but I'm still amazed at Little Ladies (sorry mummyloveslucy - am not poking fun)

mummyloveslucy Tue 08-Jul-08 18:36:41

What's wrong with Little Ladies? I think it's sweet.

MaryAnnSingleton Tue 08-Jul-08 18:37:18

It's terrible !

LIZS Tue 08-Jul-08 18:37:55

It's pretentious and twee. Most schools use animals, colours etc

mummyloveslucy Tue 08-Jul-08 18:38:17

Oh Twiglett, you don't mean that!!grin

MaryAnnSingleton Tue 08-Jul-08 18:38:53

is this a joke ?

TheFallenMadonna Tue 08-Jul-08 18:40:00

Is it just nicknamed that <grasps at straws>?

mummyloveslucy Tue 08-Jul-08 18:40:49

Well,I'd rather her be a little lady than a pig or a cow!
