The day before school starts

Clip to ScrapBook #4

we have supply drop off and when the children come with their parents I welcome them and then hand the parent a letter ( there is also a large poster in the front of the room) with simple directions where they will put the supplies. I then label (with picture and words) the shelf, table. box, desk, or locker where the supply will go. Sometimes I put them away later that day but if I have several children who don't come I leave them until the next day. It has worked very well. It is interesting to watch parent and child interaction. The sheet of directions also tells the parents that when they are all done to see me to say goodbye so I can give their child a surprise.
Before we had supply drop off day it was a fun activity for the first day of school and not so boring collecting the supplies. You just put pictures on the direction sheet and pictures on the place where you want the item all around the room and then when done they come to me to get a surprise.
