Woo-Hoo it's Week 2 of our Back to School BASH!!!

We are linking up again with our super sweet Bloggy Buddies...they each have so many wonderful ideas to share! Enjoy and remember to Link Up and Enter our Rafflecopter Giveaway!!!

This week we are sharing ideas for "Meet the Teacher Night".
Oh GOODNESS, we have done SO many things over the last 16 years together for 
Meet the Teacher Night! 

We don't have a ton of pictures but we will share some ideas we have done...
1. Handbooks: We like to keep this simple because we don't want to put our parent on overload.
2. Homework Helper Bags: We made little lunch bags with sponge painted apples on the front! Inside we put a box of crayons, a pencil, eraser, scissors, glue stick, and bookmark with homework tips on it. This gave them supplies they may need at home to work on their homework.
3. Goldfish Treats: Have mini-bags of Goldfish for your sweeties with a tag that says "You're O-FISH-ally a 1-2 Multi-Ager"! (Of course whatever grade you teach.) We got this idea from Pinterest...So MANY ideas out there!!!
4. Pencil Toppers: Anything cute print onto cardstock, cut out, and tape onto fun pencils!
5, Sharing Smarboard Activities with Parents: Take time to share with your parents...We show them how we use Reading A-Z for some of our Shared Reading Lessons, Pebblego, GoNoodle, IREAD, etc...
6. Lockers: Find your name on your locker.
7. Bookmarks & Picking their Book Boxes: Take your bookmark from your table and pick which book box you want...put your bookmark in the box.
8. Wish List: Cute Ellison or Carson Dellosa cut-outs with items we need that are not provided from our school supply lists...parents pick which one(s) they want and take the cut-out with them.
9. School Supplies Area/Table: Have a specific spot ready. They pile up quickly!!! (Some teachers have them put them in their lockers...I think we may try that this year?
10. Volunteer Sign-Ups: Have sign-up sheets prepared for Paired Readers, Field Trips, Craft Day, Science Experiment Day, Career Day, etc...
11. Parent Forms: Have parent forms prepared so they can complete them in the room and not even have to take them home! (Walking Permission Slips for the year, Photo Release Permission Slips, School Volunteer Form, Lunch Forms, Fall Conference Sign-Up times, etc...
