Hello, teacher friends!
It’s that time, when teachers get antsy for school to begin. Don’t get me wrong- we LOVE summer. But we love teaching too. And it is the natural rhythm to begin thinking of our back to school to-do list at this point in the year!
So I am sharing a must-have for back to school: The First Day Folder Packet. This is a packet filled with information about your school and classroom. I have revised, developed, and edited every year since I started teaching. I feel like I have a solid product to offer now!
This is a packet that is meant to send home on the first day of school, to answer as many questions that parents may have at one time. You could also send it at open house or “Meet the Teacher” too.
It WILL need to be edited, of course, for your information. You may need to delete or add sections. But I hope having this template to use will make the process easier for you.
It covers these topics:
-Communication: Email, folders, directory, website
-Drop off/Pick Up routines
-Rest/Nap time (specific to Kindergarten, may need to be deleted for other grades!)
The format is easy to read, with bold headings and short paragraphs. At the end, I also include a daily schedule and a form for parents to fill out so they can receive my emails and photo sharing posts.
I hope you enjoy this product and find it easy to use! Now, get back to your summer and enjoy those last few weeks!
