Welcome Back to School - Open House!

It's crazy to believe that summer is already over and back to school is here again! As sad as I am to see summer go, I am super excited to get this school year going! One of the first things that signaled the end of my summer was getting back in my classroom and putting things together again. This year teachers only had one full day in our classrooms before open house so the pressure was on!


Here is what my set up looked like for open house! I laid out my classroom flip book (template is by Learning in Wonderland), Class Dojo parent letter with student codes, and "Meet Your New Teacher" letters (template is by Learning in Wonderland again!) I also gave each student a bottle of bubbles as their welcome gift!


This year I decided to attach my name tags with adhesive pockets from Target! They were $3 for a 20 pack and I love how easily I can change out the name tags when I move seats! These skinny name tags can be found here and you can choose clipart to match each of your students!


I had a desk set up in the front of my room for parents to sign in and share transportation information! These open house forms are FREE in my store and can be found here!


I always like to include some light refreshments for my parents, especially when it starts to get warm in the classroom! Lemonade, cookies, and some mints are usually my go-to because they are super easy to prepare. I also love including this cute sign that can be found here along with some other open house signs!


Open house is the perfect opportunity to ask for donations for your classroom! I typed up some items from my wish list on these hands and printed them on colored paper. This sign is included in my open house signs pack found above!

I had a HUGE turn out this year with 14 of my 23 families attending! Meeting my kiddos made me extremely excited for this upcoming school year and I can't wait to learn and grow with them this year!

What are your favorite open house traditions? Let me know by commenting below!
