I was VERY intrigued. My first inkling was that she signed up to be a mystery reader and that I had FORGOT!!! This has not been the first time this year that I forgot to send home the reminder! ARG!
I opened up the package after bus duty and found that it was the book, "Oh the Places You Will Go."
These are a few items that they need to add to their desk:
This has many of the forms that I give parents in their Welcome folder:
I have an "about my child form", Dates available for Mystery Readers, a Volunteer choice form, Dates that the students are our "Celebrity of the Week" and a permission slip to allow me to take and post photos and videos on the Internet.
These forms are general information forms for parents:
One form is a letter about healthy snack. I have attached a list of healthy snack ideas. I also have my welcome letter which has a lot of school information, explains our rules, clip chart and class store, I also have a blank, "School Supplies Needed!" form. This allows me to quickly inspect what items the child brings with them and I am able to write down what supplies that they still need.
These items are needed to allow the student to feel "included":
Having everything that you need all together makes it WORTH the extra time that it took in August to make these. I usually make about 5 bags. Sometimes I receive new students with 30 minute notice so that makes it easy to pull it all together! ;)
I hope that you had a terrific Tuesday! :)
