At Open House or Meet the Teacher Night, do you find parents cornering you to tell you all about little Jimmy? While we would all love to be able to have a conference right then, we just don't have the time!
Alleviate this awkward situation with a request from parents before school even starts! This letter is called "In a Million Words or Less..." The letter simply asks parents to write you a letter about their child. I have found this to be INVALUABLE in my many years of teaching. Now they can tell you everything their hearts desire and you can get great insight to your students before the year begins. I send this letter home with the Welcome Letter that I send to students.
I have provided you the letter- "In a Million Words or Less" You CAN add your name to the bottom but that is the ONLY part that is editable. The letter itself can not be changed.
While I send that letter to the parents, I send a different letter to the students to introduce myself. I have provided a sample of my welcome letter that I got from Rowdy in Room 300. I provide you with the link to download her FREE template!
