WeAreTeachers Staff on November 1, Anchor charts are a great way to make thinking visual as you teach the writing process to your students. We searched high and low to find great anchor charts for all age levels.
I tell my kids to find their desks when they walk in the room. I want my parents to fill this out before heading home so that I have all this information on hand come the first day of school. I have a student information binder I keep next to my computer. I file these information sheets inside that student binder along with many other things!!!
Next up on the checklist…. This is what I consider to be the single most important piece of information you need to get from your kids before they leave that night. My biggest first day…uh, first week…fear is losing a child due to transportation confusion.
A phone call home really helps to put my mind at ease. I like keeping the transportation arrangements on a pocket chart because it helps me…and the kids. In addition to having a visual of the transportation arrangements, I also have my parents complete a school issued transportation sheet before leaving that night as well.
This sheet requires them to indicate transportation arrangements for the first day, first week, and remainder of the year. I make copies of this sheet and keep one in my student information binder and then the original stays in the office.
Then a smart friend suggested the kids do it. Because I have community supplies in my classroom, this arrangement works beautifully. At the end of the night all I have to do is take the boxes and transfer the supplies into the tubs on my supply shelf. I do have my kids keep a few supplies in their desks as mentioned on the checklist for the first day, but everything else gets put on the supply shelf.
Set out a stack of envelopes and ask your parents to fill them out with their name and address. Hold on to the envelopes and spend the first couple weeks of school getting to know their child….
Susie is so kind and compassionate…a real friend to everyone,etc. A handwritten letter is SO much more personal than an email or a text. I personally have no problem giving my parents my cell. Create a QR code with your info cellemail, etc. Same idea, different presentations. Such a fun tradition and one the kids…and parents…talk about ALL year.
