New Student Packets - this teacher makes 5 extra of everything at the beginning of the school year so that when a new student comes midyear, she has a name tag, beginning of the year info, labels for folders/journals, etc. for the student. Good planning!
At the beginning of the year, make several "New Student" bags with welcome letters, name tags, birthday tags, etc. Anything that a new student will need. This will save a lot of time when you find out on a Friday that you are getting a new student Monday!
Morning Routine/Sing-A-Longs: In Kindergarten especially, morning routines that include sing-a-longs are extremely important to get brains woke up and ready to learn! This was an activity that I created in my practicum K class that the kids loved! Everyday we had a "Word of the day" that the helper picked from our magic bag. We filled in the blanks of the song with this word, and sang through our new tune twice together, and the students even sang once alone!

One of my ALL time favorite teacher tips! Helps the panic of a new student...Then I can grab it and say "I thought you maybe joining us today." instead of "oh, we weren't expecting a new student.". It will get us off on the right foot. bags for a "New Student" ... so much better than scrounging for stuff every time a new student arrives!
