Here’s a quick back to school tip! We all know the first few days or even weeks of school is stressful. From schedule changes to new students…it’s just NUTS! I was always running around trying to get everything ready for new students the morning the front office notified me of a new addition to my class. That’s why I now use the most simple and effective way to welcome new students without the headache…a new student welcome kit!
A few years back, a teammate of mine gave me one of the BEST back to school tips ever…creating a new student welcome kit. It’s a simple and effective way to welcome new students without the headache. She was a genius!
Basically, you put together a few of the most important items your new student will need the first few days in your class. You can add a laminated blank name tag, desk tools, journals, welcome letter to parents, contact information forms, supplies, supply list, and more! I put them all in a gallon Ziploc bag and have a few ready for those last minute student additions to your class. How simple is that? You’re organized, ready for any new student who comes your way, and you’re a little less stressed.
Love the idea? Me too!
