More Back-to-School-Night & TONS OF FREEBIEs & Our October 1-Day Conference

Here are some more ideas from my Back-to-School-Night this week:
I made homework folders for each child.  They are filled with samples of:
letter formation
number formation
letter sounds
Zoo Phonics animals
The days of the week
You can see where I smudged out the name for security
reasons, but I print each child's name and class
number correctly as a model at the top.
I found most of these masters on TPT for free.
Inside, I placed the welcome packet.
Here is the 1-Day workshop we are presenting in Costa Mesa, CA.
I can't wait to be part of this event.  Heidi, from Heidi's Songs, will presenting all morning!
Her amazing ideas and songs for ELA will fill the morning with lots of smiles, laughter, and music.
You will want to follow her blog, Pinterest, Twitter, Facebookweb site and You tube.

Lunch is included and then....

Sarah and I promise to keep you entertained while we present a "Make-&-Take" session on 
Common Core Math 
You will learn tons of ideas that make the Common Core Math Skills fun & exciting.
You'll be given the materials to make new hands-on tools for teaching math concepts and 
an amazing, new handout!
Imagine having the time to create new tools that you can use in your classroom on Monday morning!
You can follow our Facebook page, Pinterest, and Twitter too.

You won't want to miss this one-day workshop.

Here are the freebies I promised you.  Let's start with this  FREEBIE.
I put this out at Back-to-School-Night and every apple was picked!
My free "Giving Tree" has apples printed on
the tree.  Each apple requests an item.
 You can place square Post-its on the tree and no one will know the difference.  :)
I stick a duplicate apple (Post-it) on each
printed apple.  

Parents take the Post-it apple & sign their
name on the printed apple on the tree so I
know who will be bringing the needed item.
I LoVe, LoVe, LoVe my Giving Tree.  It allows us to have a "tasting party" each Friday.
This last Friday, we tasted red strawberries as we celebrated the color RED.
I'll blog more about our color days later.  Click Here for your copy of The Giving Tree.

And you can find so many more Back To School Freebies Here at Teaching Blog Addict.  Just scroll down after you click on their link to see lots of freebies.

That's it for today!
Let me know if you do something special in your classroom for Back-to-School-Night.
I LoVe hearing from you!

  1. This year, for the first time I am sending my
    Back to School packet home electronically. This was a more efficient use of my time and didn't use and extra ink or paper except for my copy and a copy for those that didn't come.

  2. What a great idea. Thank you for sharing! :)
