The 4 Must-Have Freebies for Meet the Teacher

Happy beginning of the school year, everyone!

With school beginning, that may only mean one thing for you- Meet the Teacher. If your school is like mine, Meet the Teacher is held during the week of Pre-Planning. All you can think of (and DO) is work on your classroom. Plus, all of the meetings. Plus, setting up your technology. Plus, all of the paperwork. PLUS… LOL!   I know that you know exactly what I mean.

That’s okay! I am here to share all of the fabulousness that I discovered that saved me time and money. Best of all, they made me look good in front of my new students and their families.

Without further ado, these are the 4 must-have freebies that will set your off for a fantastic start.

Freebie 1: Station Signs from the Not So Wimpy Teacher. this freebie may be found in her store on Teachers Pay Teachers. Click here to access it.

The signs are editable (the text only) and feature Melonheadz “kids” for the graphics. The posters are bright, eye-catching, and adorable! They were just what I needed. Did I mention that they were free? No charge. This cute and such great quality as a gift?? Yep, free and cute!

Freebie 2: Scavenger Hunt form by That Teaching Spark.

This was also editable. I decided to align my scavenger hunt to my station signs. This was absolutely perfect and just what I needed! It was a huge hit with my parents. They thought that it was fun and refreshing.

These forms were just what I needed, and I loved that they were in both English and Spanish.

Freebie 4: Gift Labels by Glitter and Glue 4 K-2

This particular gift was for my students. You can view my previous post on Meet the Teacher and hear my rant views on giving students gifts when we meet them. I have the urge to make a comment here but think that you might enjoy reading the post. Okay, I can’t hold back. Ha ha haha Isn’t meeting their brand new teacher gift enough?

This gift was another affordable present for students. I just had to buy 3 bags of Blow Pops from the Dollar Store, and I was all set. This gift was a huge success with all of my kids!

Bonus Freebie : Rainbow Open House Meet the Teacher Night Signs K-2 by SSSTeaching

I pulled this bright and colorful sign on my classroom door to welcome my new students and their families. It was the perfect finishing touch!

I felt really proud putting these resources out.

I have to say, I don’t normally label the boxes, but this year I did. This resource made it colorful and easy. I simply printed them and placed them on the boxes with tape. You can view a portion of the forms from this set in the first photo.

Well, there you have it! 4 free resources that will help you make the amazing first impression that you would like to make on parents and stakeholders.

I hope that you love these resources as much as I did! Let me know about your Meet the Teacher!
