Teacher Thank-You Poems: Kindergarten or Preschool Class to Teacher

By Billie •  Updated: 01/17/23 •  5 min read

Kindergarten and preschool teachers are like superhero sidekicks, helping young minds soar to new heights. They teach the ABCs and 123s, and show kids how to make friends and navigate the world around them.

Writing or reciting thank-you poems to their teachers is a fun way for little ones to show their appreciation and recognition for all their hard work. Plus, it’s a great way for them to learn the importance of saying thank you.

Short Poems for Preschool Teachers

Here are several examples of teacher thank-you poems that could be used by kindergarten students to express their appreciation for their teacher:

For helping us learn, a work of heart;

“Thank you, Teacher”

Thank you, teacher, for your guidance and care,

For helping us learn and for always being there.

For reading and writing and counting, too,

For making each day fun and new.

Thank you for your patience and your kind heart,

For being our friend and playing a part

In helping us grow and be the best we can be,

Thank you, teacher, for all that you do for me.

“Our Wonderful Teacher”

Our wonderful teacher, so kind and so smart, 
Always there to help and guide us from the start. 
With a smile on her face and love in her heart, 
She helps us learn and grow, right from the start.
She sings us songs and tells us tales, 
Teaches us to count and read without fail. 
We're so lucky to have her in our class, 
Our wonderful teacher, who guides us to pass.
Thank you for your guidance and your care, 
For making learning fun and always being there. 
We appreciate you more than you know, 
Our wonderful teacher, you make our hearts grow.

Tips: You could adapt and personalize the poems for your teacher, and the kindergarten students could draw a picture of teacher or school to go with the poem, it will make it more personal and heartfelt.

“Oh, Dear Teacher”

Oh dear teacher, you are so kind,

You make learning fun and never mind,

You guide us through the alphabet,

And help us learn without a fret.

With your gentle smile and helping hand,

You make our days in class so grand,

We’ll always remember all you’ve taught,

And the love and care you’ve brought.

Thank you, dear teacher, for all you do,

We’re grateful for the time we spend with you.

With paintbrushes in hand and crayons too, 
We learn and grow under your watchful view, 
You teach us math and how to read, 
And all the things we'll need.
You make learning fun and never dull, 
With games and songs and stories to tell, 
We'll always be grateful for the time, 
You spent with us, making learning shine.
Thank you, dear teacher, for all you do, 
We'll always be grateful for the time we spent with you.
