Open House

In my school, we usually have a special night before school starts where the Kindergarten students can come meet their teachers and have their first look around our classroom.  Its also a time when they can bring in school supplies and fill out all those necessary forms.  Here are a few pictures of the special tables in my classroom where the children and their families had to visit.

I made station signs that the families had to visit to complete different tasks.  I held up the signs with pool noodles and popsicle sticks (they are in the back supporting the back of the sign). Kristen's Kindergarten Open House Night

This is the first time I’d had stations all set up like this and I LOVED it!  I laminated the signs so I could use them again next year.  It really gave the families something to do and the kiddos could help sort their supplies out.  It was much easier for me to put my supplies away too because all the sorting had been done already. 🙂
