Free download for your Friday Folders to give parents a weekly report of their child!

Student Information Interview...I do one every year on the first day of school, glue it to construction paper with their picture, the last week of school they fill out another one (without seeing the original) glue it in the same construction paper with an updated picture! Kids love it and always here lots of laughs and giggles.

End of year gift for my students. Made the parents cry! - could do something similar and include verses for each child and reminders of God's love and plan for each of their lives

I like this a lot better than most of the "letter home to the parents" sheets I've seen. The questions help guide the students through their thought process helping with their higher level thinking about their behaviors.

I love doing about me bags. I had to do one for speech in high school. Students take a brown paper bag and fill it with objects that go along with facts about themselves. I would also have the students decorate the outside and then present it to the teacher and the rest of their classmates. This is great for the first week of school.

Cute book to make: make a "who is my teacher?" book, and fill it with pictures of you! Use it the first week of school, or to introduce yourself to new students.

Learning Style Questionnaire...great idea! It's important to get to know your students early on in the year- this will help to differentiate instruction and to find out the different learning styles of each child.

First day of school idea? If in preschool or kindergarten maybe get parents to fill one out about their kids
