I am in LOVE with this blog post about Meet the Teacher night!! So many great tips on how she runs things including the student packets, helping hands for supplies, and treats for students and parents.
Open House before first day of school Tour. Parents can follow the signs and do everything you need them to do before the first day of school. Ends with a little gift for the student and the parent to welcome them into the class.
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.
