Everything you need to create a Back to School Open House / Meet the Teacher Day - Safari Style! To help avoid some of the first day jitters, we invite our students to a Meet the Teacher event before school starts. This gives the students a chance to “meet the teacher,” get familiar with the classroom in a fun way (safari guide map = scavenger hunt), do some engaging back to school activities that introduce some of the manipulatives and areas in our classroom they will be using, meet other classmates, and snap a fun picture in our photo booth to remember the day. We also invite the parents to stay after for a parent informational meeting. This is a fun way to kick off the new school year and to make those all important connections with parents and our students!

What’s Included

* An EDITABLE letter to send home to your new students (color and black and white versions)

* A welcome banner to print and hang in your classroom

* An EDITABLE safari guide map (scavenger hunt) of activities

* Signs to display at each station

* Safari number and letter puzzles

* A self portrait and name writing activity sheet

* A math game (color by number) with a number die

* A safari book reading center with book suggestions

* QR code cards that link to animal videos

* Safari hat art center
