    Open House
    By Susan

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I'm going to have their journals out where the kids have written their "favorite thing about being a child" - and then let the parents read it and answer the same question!....I'll also have a paper that I hand the parents to let them have specific things to do/look at in the classroom (the reading corner, their child's cubby, etc...). I'll have a sign-up sheet for them to volunteer to bring anything, help in any way, etc... Each desk will have the child's silouette (traced from the overhead) filled in with a collage about them. The parent has to find their child's desk based on the collages (I'll have the nametags covered)..... I'll have bulletin boards with kids' work on them .... and I'm thinking about doing a doorprize for the parent and child -to encourage them to come, but haven't decided if I want to or not. I would draw the name at the end of the night - and send the prizes home with the kids the next day (not sure of what to have yet - but something inexpensive)....... I'm also having the kids decorate some thank you notes with a piece of peppermint attached that says, "Thank you for coming to our Open House...It "mint" a lot to us!" - they'll get that when they're leaving.
