Do you have a Meet the Teacher Night at your school? We do, but we call it Orientation Night. It is a fun night with lots of freshly scrubbed, slightly nervous children wandering the halls with their parents looking to see which teacher they got this year.
I love this night of meeting the students and getting to chat with the parents in a more casual atmosphere than on parent/teacher conferences. I guess it is the air of anticipation and excitement by everyone to get the year off to a great start!
There are so many great ideas out there by some wonderful teachers. This is a collection of some of those ideas. Click the pictures to be taken to the original source of the ideas.
I am a visual person so I really appreciate Mrs. T’s S is for Second Grade post about how she organizes her parent communication binder. She has several pictures outlining how she sets it up so that she has documentation for all of the communication she makes with parents. Click her picture to see what it is all about!
Speaking of parent communication, do you send home weekly progress reports? Amber from Adventures of a Third Grade Teacher has a super cute weekly progress report form that you can grab for FREE by clicking on the picture above.
