Have your current students write a welcome letter with tips for your future students!
My kids love creating these brochures at the end of the year. They reflect on their favorite activities, write tips for success, and help future students get to know the teacher. Then, I hold on to the brochures over the summer for my next class.
On the first day of school, these are waiting on the desks for my new students to read. It's a hit every year and a great way to build community within the school.
I have versions for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. I also have versions with both male and female teacher pronouns. This is a two page (1 sheet, 2-sided) foldable. The resource is 22 pages because I have included several options.
I hope you enjoy!
