Hey everyone! I’m excited to share with you something new I’m doing this year. Every school I’ve been at has had Meet the Teacher and as I know I have mentioned on here before it is a great event, but also chaotic. You have many families you are trying to meet and greet and lots of info to get out to them. So, this year in addition to the PowerPoint I blogged about a few weeks ago I’m using stations during this event. This way parents and students have a few different things to work on which will hopefully make it easier for me to give one-on-one time to each family.
So…here are my stations…
Station #1 -Class Schedule
Parents will pick up our class schedule at this station. I like to provide the schedule right away so parents know when PE, lunch, etc are during our day.
Station #2 – Student Name Tags
Students will be creating their own name tag here. I will laminate them and then put them down where they will be sitting.
Station #3 – Parent Sign-ups
At this station parents can sign up to be a Room Parent or help with the different holiday parties.
Station #4 – All About Me Bag
I haven’t done an All About Me Bag in a few years, but decided to bring it back. I like this activity because it’s a great way to get to know students. This will be due in a few days and we will have different students share their items throughout the day/week.
Station #5 – Charts
I saw a variation of this on Pinterest, but don’t remember where. Here I have two charts – one for parents and one for students. On both they will write things they are hoping to learn or that they hope their child will learn in first grade.
Station #6 – Treat
Who doesn’t love a little treat? These “smart cookie” tags are a FREEBIE in my TPT store. I have them for kinder through 5th grade. Just a little treat for them to enjoy or take with them!
Of course I will be around to meet and greet each family too, but this way they have a few different activities to work on so I can hopefully get to everyone easier!
