Meet the Teacher
It has begun! We had "Meet the Teacher" day today. I met a lot of my Kinders that will start on Monday. I like this day because it gives me a face with the name, lets me actually talk with the parents, and (most importantly) lets the little ones see where and what Kindergarten really is. I do not allow parents in the classroom on the first day of school. I like my students to know that we are here to learn and that mommy and daddy will be there when our day is done. There are 1,001 things to do to get ready for the first day. I want to make sure that our day runs as smoothly as it can (for the first day of Kindergarten, haha). I have the parents fill out a "First Day Information" form for me on Meet the Teacher day to make the first day of school a little smoother. Here is what the form looks like: First Day Information. I did not create this form. Another awesome teacher in my district did and it as helped so much!
