First day of school letters - 5th grade

I'm putting together my information letter that I will give my students on the first day of school. Does anyone have an example of what they have done that they would be willing to share?

Thanks in advance,

Chuck

This is something that I attach to my procedures packet. If you'd like a copy of that as well, just let me know!

Include a Picture
Old 07-07-2007, 06:24 AM

Don't know if you're married with kids but I am, and I always include a recent summer photo of my family from vacation. This intrigues students a little, and also gives parents the message that "This teacher is a human being, who may have a better understanding of my child because he has children of his own."

If you're not married, then maybe a pic that highlights an interest (you and buddies at the local ballpark) or recent travel (you in a harness at a rock climb).

This, in turn, can be a springboard for you to ask not just for the usual supplies (every teacher does that), but for the student to bring in a picture on day one which features a similar focus on travel or interests or family.

Hope that helps.

Hi, I'm a new graduate from Purdue University and I've recently accepted a position as a fifth grade teacher. I'm very excited but also really nervous about everything to come. I've been checking out your posts of welcome letters and procedures and they are sooo helpful. I've never been in a fifth grade classroom before so anything you all are willing to post is GREAT!! Thanks again and keep em coming!! =)

I have a student handbook but I can not seem to get it to attach. If anyone would like a sample, please email me at edgar_janice@yahoo.com

I keep my handbook in the MOOSE notebook (Actually it is the PEANUT notebook this year). and we go over it during the first day of school. This way I can answer questions as they arise.

Sherry,

I want to thank you for sharing your note to parents and procedures list. I taught Pre-K last year and now moving to 5th grade. I am very nervous and not sure where to start. I've been searchign the internet for ideas on what to do during the first week. I am not sure what grade you teach, but your information helped me. Thanks!!

Hi, I'm interested in your formats for book projects. Yours is an old post, so I don't know whether you are even still available for comment.
Thanks!

Hi,

I'm a brand spankin' new fifth grade teacher this year and would love to look over your classroom packet. I'm trying to put together my welcome letter and classroom supplies list right now. I've still got a week and a half before orientation, but I'd like to get as much done as I can beforehand. Still lots of core content to plan!!! Thanks in advance for your help, good luck in the upcoming year!

Cheers,
Nathan

Stoneyjo,

I got a great book project called 100 point book projects.
It's on a website called, TeacherspayTeachers.
I think it cost a couple of dollars, but it was well worth it.
Hope that helps,
Allen

I love this idea! Thanks so much. I don't have any children, but my husband and I traveled to Europe this summer and I think the studenst would love to see a picture of that. Thanks!
