Our morning starts out bright and early with our itty-bittys. They show up eager to meet their new teacher. My favorite part of the morning--they all walked in & didn't say hi to me. Their first words to their bright eyed (coffee-fueled) teacher were, "Yeah, but where's Bertie?!" I think I need to get a cardboard cutout of my dog to sit in her bed for the time that she's not in the classroom.
Ms. Tunstall--I got that rad idea from you! It worked out great! They had a plan of action; so they we're all just wandering the room--fighting for my attention (I'm talking about the parents; not the kids, lol.) Station 1 was to sign in and find their student's desk & cubby. I also urged them to grab a pen & fill out all that paperwork to get a head start on the week. There was a box to turn completed papers in right next to the sign in sheet.
TPT store. And of course, say bye to Miss Curtis before you leave. The purple cards are business cards I got from Vistaprint & laminated. I stuck a magnet on the back--and now my parents have contact info at their fingertips; assuming they stick it on their fridge as directed.
One of my better Meet the Teacher Mornings, and I'm pumped for the year ahead! I just hope I can go to bed sometime before 3am tonight...........
And lastly, this is the view from my door. Notice the neatness & order. It won't happen again!
