Meet The Teacher Ideas & Downloads

*** Thanks for stopping by!  Sadly, I am NOT able to send you a file of these documents to edit due to copyright {graphics, fonts, etc.}  I apologize for the inconvenience, but thank you for your understanding!!  Blessings to you!***


Can y’all believe Meet the Teacher night is right around the corner?!  For some of us, it’ll be here much sooner than later.  I was going through some of my files and came across my “Meet the Teacher” packet, so I thought I’d share it with y’all incase y’all can put any of it to use.
Our Meet the Teacher night always falls on a Thursday.  That’s kinda genius if you ask me. It gives me the entire next day to organize and {inevitably} change name tags of the kids who go by another name than the one listed on my roster :)  I love getting to meet my new cast and get a feel for the dynamic of my classroom (which is always a little scary to think about, eh?!)  Here’s how the night typically plays out…
The kids come in, give me big hugs, and find their desks.  Supply packets are placed in each kids’ seat {of the kids who pre-ordered} and I set out an envelope of school paperwork and another little packet of paperwork and info from me.  
This is a little checklist of “to-do’s” that sits on top of their desk, also.  This is great to have out just incase I’m talking to one family as another one comes in.  I don’t have to repeat myself all night!
Slide1

The kids have to sort their own supplies which I LOVE.  I use to do this all by myself…and then I got smart.  I have TONS of baskets {hello, Dollar Tree!!!} and I label each basket with a little index card…erasers, pencils, folders, crayons, markers, etc…whatever supplies they have in their packets.  The kids have to sort ALL of their supplies and put the supplies in the labeled baskets.  LOVE it. 

Right underneath that little checklist, I have two forms that MUST be filled out before they leave. One is a transportation form the school gives us for the parents to fill out and the other is this little student information sheet.  I’m sure we all have one similar to this!  Just incase you need a new one, you can click the pic to download.
Slide7

The transportation list that the school gives us is broken up into three sections…first day, first week, remainder of school year.  I take all the transportation lists and then make three copies of the master list below.  One for the first day, one for the first week, and then one for the remainder of the year.  I keep the “remainder of the year” copy in my student info folder, by our door, and in the sub binder.  Click on the pic to download your copy.
Slide1

Then I have a cutesy little “Welcome to First Grade!” packet that I put together for the parents to take home & read.  I buy the fun little bordered paper at the teacher store to run off for the cover…I just type, “Welcome to First Grade” in a cute little font on the front, and at the bottom I type my name, school phone number, and my email address.
The first page of the packet is a little “Meet the Teacher” bio type sheet. One of my favorite things about teaching is getting to know my kiddos and their families.  I like having close relationships with my parents, so I always like for them to know a little bit about me…and I have a little first day activity I like to do with my kids where I sorta quiz them about some of that info :)

Next up, my class schedule.

A lot of firsties have older siblings who’ve already passed through the grade level, but a lot of our families are first grade newbies, so I like for my parents to have this “What is My Child Learning in First Grade?”  handout so they get the gist of what we’re all about in 1st.  I did something almost identical when I taught Kindergarten and the parents loved it!   I run a two sided copy so I don’t waste too much paper :)  Click on either pic to download.
Slide4Slide5

I also like for my kids…and parents…to have an idea of what my behavior expectations are like, so I add this little sheet to the packet, too.
Slide6

The next couple of pages are for the parents to fill out and return to school with their kids the following week.  I LOVE this “Getting to Know Your Child” questionnaire.  As you know, when you have 22+ kids in your class, it can take a while to get to know each kid…what motivates them, what are their interests, etc.  This really helps me to get to know my kids before I really get to know them.  And it helps me understand what the parents are like, too!!!  I make a double-sided copy of this form and put it in their portfolios when I get them back.  You can click on either pic to download a copy for yourself. 
Slide8Slide9

I also send home this volunteer sheet.  There are lots of volunteer opportunities and always lots of parents who can’t wait to help.  I combine these and use them to make a master list of volunteers and how they’re willing to help and then pass that info along to my room mom(s), then they coordinate the volunteers for the year :)  I know that you might have different volunteer opportunities at your school, but feel free to download this if you think you can use it!  Just click on the pic!!
Slide10
All the downloads are in black and white because I like to print everything on colored paper.  Wal Mart has huge packs of multi colored printing paper for cheapo, so I use that for all the copies.  And it’s just more fun when it’s colorful!  HA! 
I like to 3-hole punch my “Welcome to First Grade!” packets and tie them together with cutesy ribbon.  Time consuming and unnecessary?!  YES.  Cute?!  Absolutely?!  And it makes a fun little first impression :) 

Okay…now I’m all sweaty and I feel like I’m gonna be sick. Do I seriously only have a few weeks before it’s time to go back!?!?  NOT.READY.AT.ALL!!!!!!!

  3. Thank you so much for the printables. I so need to get all this ready for our first day of school. One quick question - I can no longer show the page that I have uploaded to google doc. on my blog with the link. I use to change to "older verion" and go from there but now I can't. Would it be too much trouble to explain to me how to embed the doc. into your blog - prety please! I would SO appreciate it.

  21. It's so funny- our transportation sheets are almost identical, but our clipart is just a tiny bit different! I've always thought that it's crazy how all of us teachers just recreate the wheel all the time! I'll definitely be using some of these as an update- without all the work!

    1. You need to embed the fonts if it's a pdf...

      can you email me editable files for first grade? I just found out I'm teaching first for my first teaching gig!! I don't have a clue what my schedule will look like until a long time from now, so modifying this one will be much easier..

    ReplyDelete
  48. Wow, this is amazing! Thank you so much!

    I also have what is a rather stupid question- how do you have insert such cute borders around your pages? I have yet to figure out how to insert anything other than the boring Word ones!

    ReplyDelete
  49. These are adorable!

    One thing I did that was fun was to have a small brown lunch sack with a note on the front telling the kids to bring it back on a specified day during the first week filled with three things that described them. On their day they brought it and we shared them throughout the day to give us little breaks during that first week whirlwind. (I'm not currently teaching...well, actually I will be...just my own children...I'll be homeschooling for the first time...prek, K, and 2nd...gasp!) Anyway, it's amazing what they find to fit in those tiny little bags and it's great to see what they feel is important (and it's cheap).

    One other thing I had set up in my room for open house is a graph of who came with them to open house. I made one large graph labeled with brother, sister, mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, etc. They had to get the stickers and put one on the chart for each person who came with them. Again, we referred to the graph during the first week of school for some quick activities.

    Great idea about having the kids sort the supplies. Sometimes the simplest things are just genius!

    Now, I've got to come up with some cool back to school activities homeschool style. Getting to know you probably wouldn't work....we know each other pretty well already. LOL!

I don't know if it would be easier to post them or send via email as you suggested before there were many of us requesting the kinder pages. Whichever you decide I would definitely like to have a copy. Thanks for making it all cute and organized for the rest of us!

  102. These are AWESOME! Thanks for sharing! I was wondering if you could send me the Meet the Teacher letter & First Grade Expectations in an editable form? Also, I am a HUGE font freak! I'm dying to know what the font for the Meet the Teacher colorful title and text you used for the letter? I LOVE it . What is the font you used on the First Grade Expectations too? I HAVE to get them! Thanks so much!

  147. Hello. I read your note at the top about not being able to edit these documents due to copyright. I do not want to edit them, I just want to print them. Specifically the what is my child learning so I can sort of use it as a guide or print it just the way it is. However it won't open to print. Is there any way I can print it just the way it is or that you can tell me what it says? I would love some input. Thanks so much for your blogging and sharing your ideas. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to get this document printed. Thanks again. tracyleighhuffman@hotmail.com
