Some things we showcased:
Our “We’re Besties” expository writings
In addition, we made a special writing for our desks! They turned out UBER cute if you ask me!
( <3 the curls!)
It was super easy to make these little “me” guys! Here’s a quick tutorial:
To get the parents excited about coming, I sent out these cute little invitations. Who doesn’t love a cute Melonheadz kid?

Now, at my school Open House includes a presentation of “how we do things in our classroom“. That *MAY* be why I always get so nervous for open house!
Speaking in front of 7 year olds is one thing…I could (and do :)) that all day. But their parents?! YOWZA! For some reason I just get all kinds of sick( and hives!) at the thought! LOL! You can grab my PowerPoint presentation template for FREE here!
Out on the desks, I put a few hand outs for parents that went along with my presentation (sight word list, reading strategies, quick reference for how we’re doing grades this year…)
I topped it off with a little treat of cookies and a very special poem to remind parents that we are in this together!

On my back table I had a few sing in and sign up sheets for parents to complete when they first came in the door.
(sign in sheet so I know who came!)
Sign up sheet to volunteer in our room
and also a sign up sheet so I can start scheduling beginning of year conferences.
WHEW! Add ALL that to the fact that we started our math tub centers this week and you can see why this Applicious Teacher is exhausted! LOL! Now I am off to relax (well… as much as you can with a mobile 9 month old!)
