This is a station activity that takes the talking and "work" off of the teacher. Students and parents circulate through the stations and participate if they choose to do so. They can sign up for remind text messaging or Scholastic book club through a QR code, dress up in costume, learn of the materials needed, make their way through the room, etc. Also, parents can voluntarily write a write a note to their son or daughter that I can eventually slip to them the first full week or school. This activity saved my voice after meeting with around 80 student/parents. It also brought about good questions and conversations.
