My school's "Open House" night is coming up soon! We always have it 2 days before the first day of school-- I get both nervous and excited every year!
This year I'm trying to get ahead and do small things now (so I don't have to stress right before). I wanted to share a few of my tools and some freebies with you!
First, I made these editable teacher business cards to give to my parents!
Next, I saw this adorable post on pinterest-- and decided I would recreate it to match my classroom color scheme (navy). So, I bought 3 sets of navy striped bags from Target and a box of crayons for each of my students. The bags totaled $3, and the crayons were $0.50 each at Walmart.
Inside each bag I put 2 Ticonderoga pencils (tip-- use the pre-sharpened kind), a box of crayons, and I'm in the process of cutting out these oh-so-adorable student bookmarks (one for each student). I may also include a small eraser, but I haven't had time to go back to Walmart yet.
I then used washi tape (you know you have a TON of that stuff) to attach a tag to each bag! And, voila! Easy, simple, and cute!
Click HERE to download a free set of tags (I only included the colors navy and red) for grades 1st-4th! Hope they help you plan ahead!
Lastly, I'm getting my room decorations up and running! I'm almost done. I just have a few things to finish here and there (post coming soon!) But I was able to post my cursive alphabet line yesterday-- It's in Zaner Bloser! Here is the cover if you want to check it out:
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a blessed day!
