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 and want to use these kit labels and parent contact forms for your new student kits? Just drop your name and personal email address in the contact box and I’ll send them over to you right away into your inbox!
