Nibits for Newbies 7.26.15

Welcome!

The next installment of...

Nibits for Newbies!


If you are "NEW" to the team...
this is the place for YOU!

This week's  theme:

Oooooo...the dreaded  "PARENT'S ARE COMING!"  Night!

We ALL get nervous speaking to a room of parents!
(Wear  good  deodorant, use a breath mint , and  wear  comfy  shoes!)

So..THEY are coming.
 (I will discuss what "papers" I have for them in another post.)

Today's tip is about getting parents to sign up for everything you need!

CAPTIVE AUDIENCE!

I work in a Title 1 school.
Most parents DON'T WANT TO COME SEE ME!
So I have to make it very "inviting". 
I tell the kids to "drag" their parents to talk to me.
(Not literally!) Two hands!
I give stickers to kids who "hand their parents the BTS night NOTE!

And then...


Have Food!
A bowl of apples, a plate of cookies, Mini bottles of water!
CHOCOLATE CANDY!

They will come for food!


Even though parent conferences are MONTHS away..
MAKE a chart of dates & times YOU are available,

AND HAVE THEM SIGN UP FOR A CONFERENCE!
(You will send a reminder note as it gets closer..let them choose first!)


If you have any WISH LISTS, or things you might need..
HAVE THEM SIGN UP TO PROVIDE CLASSROOM ITEMS
( We can always use glue sticks, expo markers, tissues,etc)

AND  LAST...

If YOU want volunteers for classroom work , parties, field trips, etc...
HAVE THEM SIGN UP!

This is the ONLY night they will ALL be in YOUR classroom!
USE IT!

Sometimes a CAPTIVE AUDIENCE...is a good thing!

Good Luck!
