Does your school have an Open House, Meet and Greet or Orientation before the first day of school? Have your new students go around the room checking off some of the different places in their new classroom as they go.
Simply Kinder: What We Learn in Kinder FREEBIE based on Common Core! Great resource to share with families before school (at screening or over summer) and/or at Open House to help them understand expectations.
Meet the Teacher Tips: Have parents fill out an envelope with their address. Send them a hand written note about their child a few weeks into the school year. Great way to build a strong relationship with parents!
