Each year in July, I mail my students a letter welcoming them to Kindergarten, giving them a little background information about me, sharing information and pictures of some of my favorite things. (In my example that I uploaded, I included pictures of my animals) I think this is such a special letter. Of course the parents are getting the same information, but I make sure the letter sounds like I'm speaking directly to my new student. This is my first opportunity to let them know how excited I am that they are joining me in class.
You will be receiving a powerpoint with background, textboxes, and picture shapes ALREADY IN PLACE ( the hard work has been done). All you will need to do is fill in the information you would like.
You can always move things around in the power point on your own, however as I was creating this for myself I was frustrated by the process of creating, layering, and reordering the boxes over and over, so I thought this would be helpful for someone that just wants to type and go!
