Art Class, Editable First Day of School Handouts, Contracts, Syllabus, Worksheet
The first day of school is a whirlwind of introductions and handouts. Use these first day of school handouts to start your first day in art. The information presented on the first day sets a tone for the rest of the semester or year. These printable worksheets and handouts are editable.
To my younger class I pass out a syllabus, letter to the parents, and behavior contract. With my older students I keep it simplier with just a syllabus. For all my classes, I pass out a get to know you sheet, artist to know sheet, and bathroom passes.
With these documents my students and parents are very clear on how they are graded, my expectations for behavior, what the course is about, and that I want to get to know more about them.
➢General art syllabus (2 pages)
➢Letter to parents (1 page)
➢Behavior contract (1 page)
➢Parent contact sheet (1 page)
➢Artist to know table (2 pages)
➢Bathroom passes (1 page)
➢Tell me about you (2 pages)
This includes a both PDF (to maintain specialize fonts) and Word .DOCX (easy to edit) formats.
TIP: The first day of school always involves handing out many sheets of paper that inevitably get lost in the bottomless pits of student backpacks. By adding a bright color, visual art reference, or other eye catching flair, students are more liking to notice, and keep up with these important documents.
