Use this All About Me sheet as a beginning of year activity. Students can work on this as they are walking into the classroom on the first day of school, while you are busy talking to parents and getting others settled. This sheet can also be used as a guide when students share some facts about themselves to the rest of the class.
Allow parents and students the opportunity to get to know their teacher better by giving them this Editable Meet The Teacher Night Handout at Open House, or send home on the first day of school with your welcome packet.
This list is a wonderful resource for reminding teachers of all the procedures that need to be taught to students at the beginning of the school year. I also added a checklist for you to check off the procedures as you teach them.
