Anyone have any good ideas to share? Parents need clearances to enter our classrooms so I have a feeling turnout may be low!

What's this about? Sorry, but I've never heard of it. Is it like Open House for families?

We celebrate public education by inviting parents into the classroom typically to observe a lesson. It will often include a game or parents maybe helping with a craft of some kind. A new law in PA prohibits parents in the classroom without state clearances.
So I need to extend an invitation to parents to either simply observe a lesson or game. I am new to kindergarten this year after 20 years in N intermediate grade.
I have plAyed jeopardy, done a readers theater, plAyed math games, etc. I'm kind of stuck this year.

Bingo can be adapted to all sorts of skills (letters, sounds, numbers, HFW words, etc.) and Kinders often need some help getting the hang of it. Bonus, most parents already know how to play.

I love having volunteers in the classroom. We have the background check thing here, too. From day one, I stress to parents how important it is to get it taken care of.

I hope you have a good turn-out!

A scavenger hunt is a great way for students to show their family members what they do in school. I normally stagger starting places so that the families are spread throughout the classroom. Here is a link for several free and editable scavenger hunts: Link

Thanks everyone. I saved the scavenger hunt ideas. I think I may go with BINGO, but I appreciate the great ideas. You guys are the BEST.
