Parent Kindergarten Survival Kit

Clip to ScrapBook #1

We have a problem getting our kindergarten parents to leave on the first day of school, they love to stand and watch! This of course, gets all the kids worked up. I have seen some little packages to give parents that include tissues and chocolate kisses. Does any one have ideas on to make these parent survival kits or suggestions on how to get the parents to move out of the classroom quicker that first wee?

We have a BOO HOO breakfast at our school and the PTA moms come and get them and take them to the breakfast.

Read Kissing Hand

Maybe encourage all parents to stay while you read the Kissing Hand. After the story have the parents place a kiss in their child's hand or purchase heart stickers for the children to wear throughout the day in order to help the children through the day. Then kindly ask the parents to depart so the children can prepare a surprise project for their parents for the end of the day.

I do love the idea of the PTA putting on a boo hoo breakfast though!!!

That's a great idea, brown bear. Never thought of including the parents on the first day. What a great way to "kick them out"....it's all part of the lesson. I love it!!

I love calling it something such as, "Tears and Cheers"! We have had a baggy we have given parents with a little rhyme in it to go with the items in the baggy - - a tissue, a tea bag, a penny, a kiss. I have that rhyme filed at school if anyone is interested. If you have an open house prior to the first day of school you could hand those out along with something that lets the parents know whatever it is you prefer them to do that first day - - whether it be 'drop and go', or going to a tea.

I don't have that problem because our district doesn't allow parents in the classrooms, AT ALL. It sounds heartbreaking for Kindergarten, but I have no control over that. In the past years, Ive gladly welcomed them in, but not this year. It totally kills the whole 1st day of school milestone. I still love the ideas posted and no matter what anyone says I can still give the parents a little something. Thanks for the great ideas.

Our PTO has a "BooHoo-Yahoo!" breakfast in the media center. Parents seem to like that they can hang around school a little longer, yet out of the way of the classroom.

We set up a boo hoo room, too. We have breakfast and lots of our kindergarten parents from the previous year who are available to answer questions about school, carpool, etc. We only had it for the first day, but it worked super well!
