My teammate was going to send home book orders that night and I thought it was a great idea! Sometimes I wonder if the parents ever see them and this was a great way to make sure they do. I typed up a little letter to attach to it. If you'd like it, just click on the picture. You just need to fill in the code for your classroom and sign your name.
Once they were getting ready to leave, I gave them a bag of popcorn with the label Thanks for Poppin In!. My hope is that they go home and talk about the night while having a little treat.
Some of the kids took a look around the room but there was nothing on the student desks yet. They will be choosing their seat on the first day. This is the first time I have let them do that so we will see. (Am I crazy?) Of course I am totally ready to move them around when needed and will be making sure they know that!
That's about it for meet the teacher night. We are really blessed that Friday and Monday are work days because now I can just focus on planning with my team before school starts on Tuesday.
Have a great weekend!
