• Tip of The Week!

    Here is a fun winter time story to work on themed vocabulary!

  • Create Registration Materials

    Your registration packet is the first contact you have with many parents. It is a chance to explain about yourself and give them vital information about your classroom.

    I always include:

    1. Background information about myself

    2. Ways to contact me

    3. What students need to bring to school

    4. A wish list for the classroom

    5. Any specific policies or rules you may have about snacks, bringing toys to school, birthdays, sick policy, etc

    I also include the reinforcer checklist and getting to know you sheets from the previous posts well as a social story about the first day of school. For some students I have even done a video model, or put in a CD of some common songs we sing so they could practice at home! I also use a daily note home that I laminate and circle with dry or wet erase markers. Great for daily communication without wasting paper!

    Examples of my welcome packet, note home, and social story below....
