All About Me Transition Worksheet

All About Me Transition Worksheet

(0)
Transition activity for students to introduce themselves to their new teacher. Includes space for them to write information about their home and school life and a box for a self portrait. I print these double sided and then keep them on file during the year. They make a nice thing to look back on at the end of the year as well! Students like to see what’s changed and what’s stayed the same. If your students have smaller handwriting, they can also be printed two sheets to a page so the whole sheet can be displayed on one A4 page and put up on the wall. It’s a great transition activity to do before the summer and makes an easy back to school display! I’ve seen lots of these around in different shapes and forms but prefer to keep it simple and not ask too many questions. This gives me the information I need about my students and can be completed quickly and to a good quality. It’s also a nice activity to do with a class at the end of the year and pass on to their new teacher. *Fonts used are HelloEsliScript and HelloFirstie from www.jenjonesfonts.com *

Summer Reading Bingo

Summer Reading Bingo

(0)
Bingo sheet for students to take home over the summer holidays. Includes nine different ways of reading. I like to give these out when I meet my new class and then bring in a small treat when we go back to school in September for those who have completed all nine. I know these reading challenges often have more ambitious ideas, but I wanted to make sure every option was accessible for every child in my class. Children don’t need to have access to a garden or be going on holiday to complete these challenges. They should all be able to take part and get that treat when they come back to school! *Fonts used are HelloEsliScript and HelloFirstie from www.jenjonesfonts.com *
Book Recommendation Worksheet

Book Recommendation Worksheet

(0)
Worksheet for reading recommendations including the title, author, who recommended it, why they like it, and a space for a picture. Great for a reading corner display and for a guided reading activity. I use this sheet early in the year with my class to get them engaging with our reading corner. They find a book in the reading corner they have enjoyed and fill in the sheet with information about it. They then copy the book cover into the illustration space. I usually cut out each book template and mount it on coloured card before displaying them above the bookshelves in the classroom. My students look back at the recommendations when choosing their next book to read. You can also repeat the activity later in the year when students have read more of the books. *Font used is HelloButtons from www.jenjonesfonts.com *
Parent Contact Logs

Parent Contact Logs

(0)
Pack for keeping track of communication with parents. I keep a ringbinder folder specifically for keeping track of my contact with parents. This pack contains a parent contact record sheet, positive notes home tracker, parents’ evening notes sheet, parents’ evening sign up sheet, and a multipurpose checklist to keep track of returned permission slips. More details on each are below. When I started teaching, it took me a long time to feel like I was on top of regular contact with parents. I’ve found the trick is to be super organised with it from day one and these sheets have made that possible. I hope you find them as helpful as I do! Includes: Parent Contact Record Double sided sheet for notes from each communication with parents. Includes space for contact details. I print one of these for each student at the beginning of the year and keep them in my parent communication folder. I then take brief notes outlining what was discussed each time we communicated and any next steps that need to be followed. I find this invaluable when dealing with parent concerns and preparing for meetings. If the sheet gets filled before the end of the year, I print duplicates of the second page and add them to the folder. Positive Notes Home Tracker Simple tracker to ensure that every child gets at least one positive message home per month. I like to prepare a stack of celebratory postcards at the beginning of each month and make sure each child gets one before the end of the month. This tick list keeps me accountable and prevents anyone getting missed out! Parents’ Evening Notes Sheet Sheet to keep track of the date, who attended, and general notes from each parents’ evening over the year. I usually take more detailed notes during the actual meeting and then summarise them on this sheet so I have all my notes in one place. Also includes a dedicated area for agreed next steps so I know any action that I need to take following the meeting. I print one of these sheets for each student before the first parents’ evening and keep them with my parent contact records. Parents’ Evening Sign Up Sheet Sign up sheet with parents’ evening slots from 16.00-19.00. I print these out before parents’ evening and get parents to sign up when I meet them on the playground in the morning. Includes space for the names of the people who will attend as well as the student name to avoid any embarrassing confusion! Permission Slip Tracker Simple checklist to keep track of returned permission slips. I recommend printing one of these at the beginning of the year, filling in the classlist section and then photocopying a bunch so they’re readily on hand whenever permission slips start coming in for different events. Includes space to label what the slips are for. I find these a bit of a lifesaver when planning for trips etc! *Border images used are from https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Krista-Wallden-Creative-Clips
Watercolour Alphabet Display Posters

Watercolour Alphabet Display Posters

(0)
Watercolour alphabet posters for display. Include upper and lower case letters and examples of words starting with each letter. I’ve used different versions of these in the past but have never found one with the fonts I want my students to see and word examples that are both interesting and recognisable. Thought I’d make my own for next year to suit what I need! I hope you enjoy using these.

Place Value Display Posters

Place Value posters from Hundredths to Millions. I have them up from tenths to hundreds all year and add the others when needed, but they can all be displayed at the same time if that works in your classroom. Higher numbers include the option to display with commas (1,000,000) or without (1 000 000). Scroll to the end of the pack for the comma versions. Enjoy!

Welcome Back Banner

Welcome back lettering for a back to school display. Letters layered over circles to make it easier to cut them out after laminating. Available in both rainbow colours and black and white to save on colour printing. I love having something up on the walls at the beginning of the year and the kids always seem to appreciate the nice message. Hope you enjoy using it in your classroom! *Font used is HelloEtchASketch from www.jenjonesfonts.com *
