    Open House Ideas

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I usually create a powerpoint presentation every year that goes over my classroom rules and procedures, introduces some of the topics we will be learning that year, and lists suggestions for parents about helping their children become successful students.

    Another thing I do that the parents absolutely love is make magnets with my contact info on them and pass them out at open house. I go to Michael's or JoAnn Fabrics and get the little apple shaped wood cutouts (Michael's has them on sale 5 for $1 throughout the year) and I spray paint them all red. Then I use a thin paint pen to write my name, email address and school phone number on them. Next, I glue a clothes pin on the back and stick a magnet on the back of the clothes pin. This way parents can put it on the fridge AND use it to clip school papers to as well. It takes a bit of time to write on them all, but if you do a few a day, it's not so bad.
