Cute Idea for first week. Students fill out questions about themselves, attach picture and name in cute colorful font, and put into classbook. Then spend sometime reading each day toget to know eachother. From doodlebug teaching.
This blog post is full of amazing ideas for how to prepare for Open House night and get a head start on learning about your students! I especially love the idea of an “About the Teacher” page and a page letting parents know all of the awesome things their children will be learning that year.
