    I hope I do this right this is my first post. We have had Grandparent's Day at our school for about 10 years and it is HUGE. The Grandparents love it. Each year staff members volunteer to get it all ready--they print out a schedule for each grandparent so they know which room to go to at what time. At our school, they come for about 3hours--they check in at 8am and get welcomed by our principal then they come visit our classrooms for 1/2 hour and then have a coffee break in the gym and then they come back to our room for about 1/2 hour. At the end the younger grades (they usually have the most grandparents attending) do a mini concert for them. When they are in our rooms we try to show them things we do in school now. For example--math problem solving or social studies--united states bingo. We try to do something that is fun so grandparents can interact with their grandchild while doing it. The fifth grade teacher at our school has her students interview the grandparents to find out what life and school was like back then.
