Meet the Teacher Bilingual Freebie

Hi everyone! Hope you are all absorbing as much rest as possible as our summer is quickly coming to an end.  I know some of you have already been back at school for a while.  I went back on Monday but students don't start until the 22nd.  So, I want to share some printables (in both English and Spanish) that you can use for your Meet the Teacher, if you haven't had yours yet.  If you have, you can save them for next year!

Meet the Teacher Freebie
Meet the Teacher is always exciting because we get to see the faces of our little ones and they get to meet us!  It's also an excellent opportunity to get some important information from parents!  Most of us go over rules and procedures, pick-up time procedures, emergency contact information, and so much more.
One of the most important pieces of information you can gather from parents on Meet the Teacher, is how their child will get home.  Our job is to return their precious child at the end of the day, but they need to let us know how they want us to deliver.  Then you can ask how their child will get home the rest of the year.  Sometimes parents take time off work on the first day of school to take their child to school and to go pick them up, but it might be different for the rest of the school year.

I have also included an LPAC note.  Some of us will need to find parents that can participate in LPAC meetings and this note will be very useful in helping find those parents at the beginning of the school year.

Tip for new teachers:  Remind the parents of 3 and 4 year olds to please not cry in front of their child when they drop them off because that gives their little ones the impression that something is wrong.  And there is nothing wrong, in fact, it's all wonderful!  It's wonderful that their students are going to learn so much!  So, remind parents to please wait to get in their car to cry!  The last thing you want is a classroom full of crying children and parents!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Meet the Teacher and a fantastic school year!
