First Homework/Show and Tell Idea

Ericka mentioned in a previous post that we are lucky enough to have a day to meet our little first graders on an interview day.

I really think that it helps them not feel so scared about all the big changes that are awaiting them in first grade. We give the parent(s) our disclosure, a student planner and various other beginning of the year notes. We give the first grader a simple homework/show and tell assignment.

  1. Don't you just love the first day interviews? Love it! Are you guys annoyed that I comment on everything you post? HA! :)

  2. i'm so happy to have found your blog!!! :)


  3. Thank you for sharing! We have a 1st grade orientation the week before school starts, but I would love to have one-on-one interviews instead!
