Here are a couple things I created for my class this year and thought I would share. Sometimes it's tough to start from scratch and finding something that will help you out is always good.
This is my parent survey. I send it home the first day so that I can grab those parent helpers and get them trained right away. It's posted as a freebie on TPT...I am still learning how to post things on there. Here is the link:
This second one is a simple, quick list for the end of the day. Now that I'm at a school with bus pick up I want to keep all 22 kids going in the right direction...especially if I end up with a substitute.
I hope that the beginning of your year is going well so far!
