Make your new students feel extra special when they arrive in your class. In this packet, you'll find a Welcome Poem to give to the child, 25 questions that your students can ask the new student (I break up the questions so he/she doesn't get overwhelmed) and several "It's a... New Student" stork pages to select from. These sheets (Primary and intermediate lines)can be used two ways: 1. Kids can write letters to your new student or 2. After asking questions, each child can write a few facts they learned about their new friend. Then they can bring home and share the exciting news with their parents. NOTE: I run one complete set of both the blue and pink stork papers so I'm good to go when the new student arrives. Don't they always seem to arrive on a hectic day with little or no advance notice? I use colored copies since the only colored parts are the tiny hearts and beak on each one. ENJOY!
NOTE: Updated toI add "I learned 3 facts about my new friend" page.
