Meet the teacher Night

Hi everyone and welcome back! I hope y'all are doing great and that your classroom is coming along! :)

I know we are not on the week of "Meet the Teacher Night" just yet, but I am sure you are already thinking about it and even planning some stuff for that night! So I wanted to share with you some of the things I do on Meet The Teacher and what better way to share by giving you all these for FREE! :)

What I usually have on me: TWO sign-in sheets for my personal use and for me to turn in to my school (the last school I worked at, they used to give me a sheet they made themselves and I used to make me an extra copy to use as well),  a post-it, and my information card.

So what I used to do on that night as a prep before my parents arrived was to leave the school sign-in sheet on a table by the door for my parents to sign-in. As they come to talk to me, I would write down their information such as phone number, their child's name, and most important, the transportation for the school year. This info would easily change since some of my parents would take and pick them up for the first week or anything like that, but I always encourage my parents and even warned them big time about the importance of transportation in order for their children to arrive and return safely.  It helped me big time to have an extra copy with their number on it in case I needed to contact them on the first day of school. On that sheet (full of scribbles, I would also write any information or concerns parents tell me on that night).

I also had post-its, so while I was talking to parents, I would ask my student to write their name on it and choose a place to sit. They loved the fact that they were choosing were they would sit in the classroom, so that was always a hit :) Yes, I of course would change their choice if it was necessary after school started, but at least it gave them a chance to choose where to sit for the first weeks. And believe me, there were students that were never moved from there because they worked so well that it wasn't necessary to move them.

Last, but definitely not least, I would give them my info card. I would point out the magnet on the back so they wouldn't lose it and place it on their fridge if they wanted to. They all come in English and Spanish. You can edit the text to put your information. Please know that I can't give you access to the font or clip art due to copyright...
I have several styles, so just click on the picture to check the one you like the most :)


I also wanted to share with you about what I had on each desk, ready for them to take. I had the following:
1. Any school papers that were given for us to give parents.

2. Handout with my information. I know several bloggers have created the booklet foldable, I know it's SOOO adorable and I just loveee the colors they used. However, I'm honest with y'all, I came up with a simpler way and a simpler foldable that I personally think it will do the work :) Now, it doesn't have as many windows as the other foldable, but this is what I used and it has worked just find for me and the information I gave to my parents.

This foldable contains the basic information I provided to my parents. Say goodbye to the million lose pages!! No more using 10 pages for 10 different things!!! All the info is in this foldable!!!
I created a document on google docs so you can edit the inside only (Please just remember that I can't give you access to the font or clip art due to copyright.) What you can edit is the inside of the document with your own information!
This foldable comes in both color and B/W version. It also comes in both English and Spanish  :)

3. Along with the papers from school and my foldable I used to place a Goody Gift Bag for each student. I would like to share with you some snacks ideas that you can give to your students.


Alright friends!!! That is all for now!! :) I hope you have enjoyed reading this post and I really hope you can use any of these freebies!! I'll be posting more stuff next week! :)
