Meet the Teacher night, Open House, Orientation....
One of the most exciting nights of the year! I get so eager to meet my kiddos and parents every year. I also want everything to look extra special for this night.
This year, we had an orientation before school started. The students and parents became familiar with the new building and had an opportunity to meet the teacher before the first day.
Our Open House took place this past Wednesday, almost a month after school started. 
Here's how I made these nights extra special (tons of FREEBIES!):
I purchased .15 cent folders at Walmart to insert all of the important documents. One one side I added the documents to keep at home. The other side consisted of the documents that needed to be signed and returned. 
You can grab this folder cover HERE.
 The starburst treat bag tag is from The Applicious Teacher

I got this wonderful idea from one of my coworkers. Magnets!! So easy to make. I designed a small business card on Powerpoint and purchased a roll of magnetic tape on Amazon. (Like 7 bucks for a huge roll) 
The parents can paste these on their fridge for easy access and even easier communication. :D
 (I do not include my personal number. I learned from my mistakes...)

 My wish list was displayed on these cute little cupcakes I downloaded for FREE from My Cute Clipart . I added textboxes to the images and inserted my wishes.

A little lemonade and donuts..... and we're set!
You can grab the lemonade tag HERE.
Please comment if you use any of these. I would LOVE to see pictures of your Open House or Parent Night events!!
Today i'm linking up with the fabulous ladies from of Lucky Little Learners and Schroeder Shenanigans in 2nd for their monthly linky party!

Coincidently, the ladies at Blog Hoppin' are also hosting a classroom tour linky today!

I've been dying to share my classroom with you guys! I moved to a new building this year (third grade) and I actually have a decent sized classroom! (I've always had tiny classrooms)




My favorite part of my classroom: The library/reading area! My best friend made the BEAUTIFUL tree for me out of Vinyl after watching the tutorial on KinderCraze's blog! It's PERFECT.

I'm also in love with the word wall, inspired by Simply Creative.

My reading strategy posters are from Amy Groesbeak and the pencil is from the Teacher Wife. 

The supply labels can be found HERE


These lovely labels by Core Inspiration added a pop of chalkboard to my library bins.
 The lamps are from IKEA. (Still need to buy some lightbulbs!)


Fluency strips hanging by the library from the fabulous Mofatt Girls
Math Workshop Rotation board can be found in my TPT store. 


Teacher desk/ Teacher corner
I found the tassels on sale at Michaels. Aren't they adorable and PERFECT for my colorful room!

Added labels to some extra bins to hold all of my center games and activities. 

Student work board (Coming soon!)

Literacy Center rotation chart
The number line is by Amy Lemons and the objective board by Amy Groesbeck.

Love these little punctuation people by Jamie Perchinksy. 

Motivational posters hanging above the door. These can be found in my store. 


One side of the room.... 
Alphabet posters are from my TPT store.
