We still have one week left of summer vacation and I've already started planning. I'm proud to say that I've gotten my welcome letters written and printed - yeah me!
My Welcome Letters turned out so cute - thanks to Melonheadz clipart.
I like to send a little "Get to Know You" sheet home with my students. Every year I say I'm going to reuse the old one... and I end up making a new one:) I use this sheet at the beginning of the year and read the responses throughout the week to get the students to guess who each other is. I also saved them all year (it was a miracle that I didn't lose any) and reread them. The kids had so much fun guessing who everyone was now that we had spend 180 days together.
Good Luck with your back to school preparations! Check back for more:)
