Here are the items I had on the desks for parents. An M & M vitamin treat, a sample of student work, a poem written by the students, the yellow slip is a for the parents to leave their child a note. The green folder is full of all that curriculum information parents need to know, a password sheet for them to access the reading, math, science and social studies text books, and an Imagine It! spelling list of words for the entire year.

Students drew a map of the classroom. They colored their desk a special color. I handed these to the parents at the door so they could use the maps to find their child's desk.
