Hi everyone! It's Jennie from JD's Rockin' Readers!
So far summer break has been great! Of course, it is going by way too quickly!!
It's time to begin thinking about the beginning of the school year. We have our Open House a couple of days before school starts. This allows us to meet the students and parents prior to the school year starting. Students can see the classroom, find their seat, and hopefully relieve some anxiety if they are a little nervous about starting the school year.
The time always goes by so quickly and it is hard to make sure that all parents receive all of the information that they need. I have a Power Point slideshow that I have run the entire time on my Smart Board. It gives some information that the parents may have a question about but don't want to ask because of the other craziness going on at the time.
You can download this Power Point and change it to fit the needs of your classroom. One of the fonts used in this product is called Pea Katrina by Kevin and Amanda. You can change the font to something else on your computer or download their font for free here. You will need to restart your computer after downloading for it to work.

What other ideas do you have to make Open House run more smoothly? I would love to hear about it!
