A classroom handbook is a great resource to give parents on Back to School Night or Meet the Teacher Night. I've deleted most of the information that I use for my classroom so that you can simply type in your own information and tailor it to your own needs.
If the fonts come out looking strange, it's because I've used a fun font from KGFonts: www.kimberlygeswein.com. It's called KG Ten Thousand Reasons. It's a free download!
Also... If you use The Sisters' CAFE for reading, I've included some details about that under my Reading section. You're welcome to use my information, or check out The Sisters' website for more information: www.thedailycafe.com.
My teaching partner (Carrigan's Creative Creations on TpT: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Carrigans-Creative-Creations) and I have also developed a writing system that mirrors the CAFE. We call it FOCUS on 5. I've included some details about that in this packet, too. If you like the sounds of it, our FREE FOCUS on 5 Writing Menu will be coming soon!
