Back to School BLOG HOP!!!

I don't know about you but I can't believe it is August already! I am not ready for school to start, although I am excited to get back into a daily routine again. I've linked up with my sweet friend Tammy from The Owl Teacher for her Back to School Blog Hop Giveaway! Be sure to visit my other teacher friends to gain some new ideas for back to school season AND enter our giveaway! Links to their blogs are at the bottom of this post. You can also enter our giveaway--we have THREE different prize packs up for grabs: grades K-2, 3-5, and 6+.

I am giving away a copy of one of my best selling products in the 3-5 bundle. It is my Cereal Box Book Report! You can read more about it and check it out HERE!
Today I want to share with you how I set up some things for my Meet the Teacher night. We have our Meet the Teacher night after school has already started so I have already given out most of the letters and forms needed for the year, but I still have some things I would like from parents so I have set up a few stations for parents to visit while they are in my classroom. I like to have parents sign in so I know who visited. After they have signed it, I ask them to visit the stations I have set up around my room. Some of the stations include meet the teacher, classroom supply wish-list, e-mail address sign-up, classroom reminder sign-up, and a treat for coming  You can see below how I set it up. {I included a picture of my desk just because I LOVE how it turned out!!!!!} Make sure you read to the end because there MAY be some FREEBIES for you to snag and a giveaway to enter!!!!! ;-)
You can snag an EDITABLE copy of my Meet-the-Teacher letter HERE... for FREE!!!!
I purchased this adorable wish list set up from The Pinspired Teacher.

If you haven't heard of REMIND you must try it out!!! It is so awesome to be able to connect to parents this way WITHOUT giving out your phone number! Read more about it on their website or download the app for free! This letter is a freebie I found on TpT HERE.

This treat was a hit last year--and easy to put together! I picked up some Extra gum at the Dollar Store and taped them to these adorable tags I found for free HERE!

I hope you are able to use these tags or ideas for your upcoming open house or meet the teacher night! You can snag my table signs from my TpT shop HERE! Be sure to look around my store because I have some other freebies you may be able to use for back to school season! I hope you all have a great year!
