Parent/ Teacher Conferences ✔️ put this out for the parents. It was so cute having the kids write about what they're proud of their learning so far (yesterday) and the parent comments added today are even sweeter!
Bits of First Grade: Curriculum Night/Open House
Set up a "Giving Tree" for Open House and/or Parent Teacher Conferences. Cut out some apples and write what supplies you need on the apples. An easy way for parents to donate to your classroom.
*LOVE* this for the beginning of the year! (OK, I really just love this whole stinkin' site...)
School and the City: Open House (Meet the Teacher Night)
Balloon Globes that are perfect for Open House. Back to School activity. Social Studies project.
Learning In Wonderland: Silhouette Autobiographies, Read Across America, and More
Perfect for back to school night! Kids and parents both love this activity. Kids create the quiz about themselves by filling in the blanks. Parents answer the questions without peeking. Fun and FREE
First day of school picture idea for teachers/new students. We should make one of these in the front entry of the school so that parents can take a photo.
I love the idea of having a compliment box in a classroom at all times. Students/teachers/visitors can write a compliment about someone at any time. A few will be read each day!
