Open House Organization!

Happy Sunday!  I think I'm going to pop in to school today to make sure everything is READY for kiddos on Tuesday!  You know, just in case some evil elves came in since Thursday and messed things up...?  I just have to check and make sure!  (And sharpen 28 pencils so they have something on their desks right away to complete their wordsearch with them they walk in!)

Last Wednesday we had our Open House.  I like having it before school starts because it turns the experience into a time for students and families to explore and spend time in the classroom and makes it less likely to be a mini-conference.

I always have tons of forms out for parents- sign in sheet, party sign up forms, volunteer sign up, e-mail list... and I have just finished turning all of those forms into something editable that I could share with all of you!

The packet is for sale at my TpT and Teacher's Notebook shops and contains 27 pages of different forms and things for Open House.  It is a Powerpoint file in which all of the "pages" are actually JPEG files so you can put your own text boxes right over top of them to customize them for your classroom!  And I put in all of the text boxes for you... so all you have to do is customize your own messages and cute fonts!
Find it on TpT          or          Teacher's Notebook

I'm really excited about this and know it might be a little late for some of you... but if you haven't had Open House yet or you want to save it for next year... it might be right up your alley!

Want to win one?  I'll give a free copy to the first two people who correctly guess the number of students I'll have in my 3rd grade class!  Don't forget to leave your e-mail address!  Liz and Danielle guessed correctly... I have 26 students!  I need the two extra pencils... just in case!  And kudos to those of you who knew I would be teaching multiple classes of reading throughout the day!  *Technically* I have about 115 students... but 26 are my core class!

Enjoy!!!

  2. Wow, fab work!!

    The answer I was going to give is taken, so I'm going to go out on a limb and pretend you were being sneaky....29, because you'll have one student absent.

  3. I'll guess 26 since no one wants to hear on the first day of school "My pencil broke!!"
