Back To School Information Foldable Flipbook for Parents
Perfect for Strong Home to School Communication!
It's a new year and having an organized classroom with open lines of communication with parents is crucial! I designed this back to school foldable three years ago when I started at a new school. I've recently re-designed it with bright NEON backgrounds and black and white inverted versions too! If you love the fonts and want to make sure you can see them the same as the pictures, download:
Graphics From the Pond: Pond Free Me
KG Fonts: KG Blank Space
They're both free for personal use!
I've received only positive feedback from parents for this one! I hand it out on the first day of school and it answers most questions parents have for me and makes the transition to a new teacher and new room so much easier. The easier the transition, the happier everyone is!
This foldable is COMPLETELY 100% EDITABLE! Change the title, subtitles, font and information to make it your own. I've included some tips about what you might want to inlude and what I include in mine. It took me weeks and many middle of the night "OH YEAH!" notes to compile evertying I think parents would like to know for the upcoming year.
Some things I include are:
- ideas on how to keep lines of communication with parents open
- how I share classroom news
- classroom expectations and all those little things that make our rooms run smoothly
- things you might want to share about fieldtrips
- significant days in my room (Friday is spelling test day!)
- what parents might want to know about homework in your room
- home reading - what I do in my room and the FIVE Finger Rule!
I also included super easy step-by-step instructions on how to print and assemble the booklet for success every time!
NOTE: When you're editing the text boxes, don't make them bigger than they come with the download or it will make your booklet uneven.
Includes TWO different versions. One is full colour and beautiful! Great for sending to print services. The other is black and white and looks cheerful on brightly coloured paper! Either way, this booklet is sure to be a winner!
