Back To School Booklets

Creating A Loving Classroom Community

When school begins teachers spend a lot of time focusing on their bulletin boards, the classroom decorations, and getting things prepared for the first day of class.
One thing I have found to help make the transition each year seamlessly is the use of the “Back To School” Booklet.

This is something I have done to discover interesting facts about my students from the people who know them the best, their parents.

I have the instructions on the smart board and put on a song so they complete the booklet in a relatively short amount of time.

At the parent orientation after the power point presentation I have each parent take a sheet of paper, selecting either boy or girl. and fold it in half (hamburger fold) then fold the paper in half again to create a small booklet.

1. On the outside, the front page, they write their child’s full name, their nickname if applicable, and date of birth.

2. On the next page they tell me what they believe makes their child special.

3. On the third page they share any concerns they have for their child starting school or things they believe I should be aware of to make our year go more smoothly.

4. On the final page they share things their child likes to do, favorite things, pets, etc.
At the end of the song I ask one parent to take up the booklets.

These “Back To School Booklets” are treasures that help me to understand and prepare for each child. As I read the booklets I develop an understanding of needs and joys before they ever enter the classroom.

The relationships we build today make the teaching we have to do tomorrow powerful
