With our colorful Meet the Teacher signs and printables, you can add some fun and color to your night without spending hours prepping.
Our Meet the Teacher night is typically pretty laid back and doesn’t involve any formal presentations. The students and their families find their classrooms, meet the teacher, drop off school supplies and take a look around the room. Here we have provided some forms you may wish to lay out that evening so that you can get some information about your students quickly. Parents can fill out some of the documents while they are visiting and leave them with you or they can take the forms home and return them with the student on the first day of school. In addition to meeting your students and gathering a little bit of information, you can also choose to have a few activities for the students and families as they walk around your room.

You will also find a school scavenger hunt, perfect for helping your students take a quick tour of the school.
Using simple, temporary name tags is an easy way to have students pick temporary desks/spots in the classroom and also to find out what they would like for your to call them this year. As each student comes into the classroom have him/her write their name and what they would like to be called on this slip of paper. They can then place the slip of paper at a spot in the classroom where they would like to sit. (This gives some students peace of mind if they see a friend’s name somewhere in the room.) You can use these temporary name tags or make more creative ones before the first day of school.
