Open House Night

Day three of Open House week on TBA! Today we share items we give to parents on Open House night or Meet the Teacher night. This year I'm going to have my kiddos leave a little note for their parents. I put together a cute little note card for my first graders to use tomorrow. Click on the picture for your copy.


I got the next idea from First Grader at Last. She had made a skills list for each nine weeks. I thought that was a FABULOUS idea! Especially because we have changed up our scope and sequence so much. I also thought it was a great thing for parents to see. We send out newsletters but it's hard for parents to get the whole picture. I work in Texas and we are one of two states not using common core standards so my copy won't work for most of you. If you'd like me to send it to you anyway just send me an email! The pictures seem a little blurry but you get the idea!

  1. The overview is a fantastic idea! My open house is tomorrow! I'll have to post my photos and ideas after the fact! One big project I've been working on is a cute trifold reference brochure and a PowerPoint presentation.You can read more about them at my blog if you have a chance. Thanks for getting this going!

  2. Wow. That looks like a lot of work. I would be thrilled if my child was in your class. I would always know what to reinforce at home.

  3. I love the idea of the 9 week overview. I send home a weekly flyer just highlighting reading skills, but I think parents would appreciate knowing the skills for the quarter. Plus, then when report cards are distributed it will help them to better understand what was assessed.

    Although I do teach in a state that has adopted the CCS and I teach 2nd grade, I would LOVE a copy of your version. I appreciate you offering it!!!
