This is a great way to greet the students on the first day. The teacher gives each student a Meet the Teacher page and a goodie bag. There is also a student info sheet on each desk. This could be a great first assignment for students to begin working on as soon as they enter the room.
New Student Packets - this teacher makes 5 extra of everything at the beginning of the school year so that when a new student comes midyear, she has a name tag, beginning of the year info, labels for folders/journals, etc. for the student. Good planning!
Fantastic idea! As an end of the year gift I bought my students beach-balls , they collected classmates signatures..we had a "ball"
