Meet the Teacher

Hello, friends!

I've been a little MIA lately! Can you guess why?
We're back! Yes, we are back at school!
Teachers officially returned August 1,and my kiddos came last Thursday!
Whew! As my friend, Nancy, would say, "I'm smooth spent!"

Are you back? Are you prepping to go back? OR are you still enjoying summer?

I had 26 firsties on roll, but so far only 24 little bodies. Time will tell.

 Meet the Teacher was Wednesday morning.
Here are a few pics. 

Back to school night and Open House are coming! Meet the Teacher forms, signs, and editable templates make organization easy.

I set up Step by Step parent tables to help with the chaos.
This was certainly not my original idea.
Some smart souls have been doing this forever.
I must say I am sold!!


 Here's what parents saw when they walked in the room.
We had two tables set up with steps 1-8.

Back to school night and Open House are coming! Meet the Teacher forms, signs, and editable templates make organization easy.
 Step 1-Sign in
Step 2-Place name labels on your child's supplies
Step 3-Correct form of transportation-car, bus, daycare
Step 4-Correct lunch form-box or tray

Back to school night and Open House are coming! Meet the Teacher forms, signs, and editable templates make organization easy.
 Step 5-Sign up for Friday Treats
Step 6-Parent Volunteer Forms
Step 7-Emergency Form-complete and turn in
Step 8-Information Folder for Home, First Day Name Tag, and Thank You!

  19. WOW! How thoughtful and thorough you are! I would have been blown away if i were a parent in your classroom! Really lovely stuff. Thanks for sharing.

  20. Great stuff! All the themes look great! I wish we did a before school meet the teacher here. We have a back to school night during the first week of school instead and have only 20 minutes to 'present' all the important info. No time to actually meet the families, get forms done, etc....
