A Back-to-school MUST HAVE!
Download for free and print this out NOW for an organized first day of school!!
As a middle school or high school teacher it's common to have upwards of 100 students these days!
It's very important to keep track of both student and parent/guardian contact information and this gives you an easy, organized, and fun way to keep it all in one place.
There are two student information cards on each page that can be cut in half and printed on to fun & colorful paper or cardstock-- have the students fill them out on the first day of school and immediately file them in ABC order by class period. You could even color coordinate the info cards by class period. The size of the information card fits PERFECTLY into a mini-binder (Target dollar spot has cute ones!), just simply set your three-hole puncher to the appropriate size and, voila! You know have all of the information in one place that can be easily transported from school to home if need be.
A few notes about the information included on the card.
#1. I have found that the "relationship to me" portion of the parent/guardian section is so, so important! No longer will you embarrass yourself or upset a student by referring to their "mom" or "dad" if they are not in the picture. Students can easily identify if the guardian is their mom or maybe a step parent, even an grandparent whom they live with by putting that relationship in parenthesis following their name.
#2. I like to also include the student's homeroom teacher/number as well as any sports/activities they are involved in for a few reasons:
- It helps me to get to know my students and what they are interested in!
- If I need to find them quickly during a homeroom period or leave a message for their homeroom teacher I know where they are.
- I know ahead of time what sports/activities they are involved in so I can get out and support them but can also see what days I will be missing lots of students for games/events.
