Eighth Grade Graduation Gift Ideas From a Teacher

Save

Graduating from eighth grade is an event that should be recognized. The graduating student is transitioning from middle school, sometimes referred to as junior high, to being a high school student. The occasion is often recognized with parties or dances. Teachers should help reward students by giving gifts upon the completion of eighth grade.

Gifts that Encourage

  • Just because her students are graduating, doesn't mean a teacher can't continue to encourage her students. A teacher can give the eighth grade graduates gifts that will continue to encourage them through the summer months, into their high school years and beyond. Classic literature books with a meaningful, personal note inside, will encourage students to read. The gift of a journal will encourage students to write creatively and to record important moments.

Useful Gifts

  • High school students need school supplies. An eighth grade teacher could choose to give each member of his graduating class something that she will use in the next school year. A high quality pen will be something that students can use while taking notes in high school classes. Other useful gifts include book covers and book marks.

Sentimental Gifts

  • If an eighth grade teacher wants to give her graduating class something with a sentimental twist, she can consider giving a gift with the school logo or name on it. T-shirts, bumper stickers and magnets with the school logo or in school colors will be something the child can treasure. For a teacher who teaches a specific topic, consider giving a gift that reflects a particularly important or fun unit of teaching. For instance, if a science teacher taught a unit on butterflies, the gift of a small ceramic butterfly would be a nice piece to help students remember the unit.

Keepsake Gifts

  • Traditional graduation gifts are appropriate for the eighth grade graduate. A stuffed bear wearing a graduation cap is always an appropriate gift for any graduate. A teacher may also consider giving the gift of a document frame so students can frame the new diploma.
