As parents and little cowboys and cowgirls entered the room I directed them towards a desk loaded with goodies. Among my favorites were the Back to School Magic Confetti and the nifty little welcome packet that I modified for parents to take home. The parent envelope contained a classroom brochure (which listed every ounce of class info), second grade expectations, our schedule, a letter from yours truly, and a breakdown of what their child would be learning throughout the year.
Any additional papers that needed to be completed and returned were also included. I have to say thanks to Cara Carroll for sharing this idea because it was definitely a huge hit. Instead of sending parents out the door with tons of different colored papers falling out of their hands, I was able to take more time with introductions rather than "fill this out...and put this here...and don't forget this too!"
