It is that time again that I start opening up my "beginning of the year" files! I cannot believe that this is starting so soon!
I always make sure that I have a good supply of these forms ready to go:
-Get Well Soon
-Character education forms
-Passed sight words and math facts
These are open house items:
-How to put away supplies
*I have 3 Riesen candies and a small pack of Extra gum bundled in tissue paper and tied with ribbon.
-The card states, "Here are a few "riesen's" why I want to make this an "EXTRA" special year." (If I state reasons on the card.)
"I hope that your child will find many "riesen's" to enjoy this EXTRA special year!"
-Welcome parent folder
*Video and Photo Permission
*Welcome letter with rules and procedures
*Tell me about your child form
-Welcome student gift
*Homework supply kit
-Dismissal (first day and regular)- HEAD OVER TO TPT- it is FREE!!! This saves so many headaches from transportation issues during the first week! :)
Beginning of the year:
-Getting to know you bracelet
Random items to have for the first 2 weeks: (You never know how long it will take you to teach procedures!)
-Sticker stories: The kids love them and it gets them motivated to write!
-Writing temples ( I just LOVE this FREE website!)
I have nothing to do tomorrow so I hope to get into my classroom and start working away and finish all of my EDM pre-assessments from the first teacher book as well as work on some of my common core comprehension! :) Have a great evening (or day for most of you by the time you read this!) :)
