Absent Student Folders. This would be a real time saver if a responsible student was given this folder to fill for an absent student. Then he/she could give it back to the teacher at the end of the day. Done!
This free parent and teacher communication log with help you keep quick notes between you and parents. The Back To School tool is great for quick reminders in addition to your newsletter or for writing and sending positive notes home. I use these in students homework folders.
I've got to do this next year New Student Pack. Make 5 extra at the beginning of the year and include: the name tag, lunch number, birthday candle for our display, labels for folders, desk plates, spelling folders, take-home folders, notebooks, beginning of the year information notes, brochure about our classroom, etc.
