Back to School Night

Our Back to School Night is this coming week.

Most of the evening will be spent with me talking about first grade curriculum and activities. But, the parents will also participate in some activities.

As parents enter the room, they will find their students' desks and read the "Welcome to Back to School Night" letters written by their children.

Parents will read the letters and respond back by writing notes to their children. 

You can download the Back to School Night Letters and Notes for FREE HERE.

The parents will also estimate how many erasers are in a jar. The child whose parent guess is closest to the actual number of erasers gets to hand out the erasers to the children in the class the following day. I also have a special treat for the child {usually classroom tools}.

The students' drawings of themselves will be on the walls {with names hidden}. The parents will try to guess which one belongs to their child. {They're amazingly good at it.}

The parents enjoy the activities, and the children are always excited to read the notes left by their parents.

I also include a gift for each parent. I'll take pictures of my Back to School Night classroom and post them later this week.  

I'd love to hear about your Back to School Night activities.

Enjoy your Sunday.
