They're back! These five simple projects will make your life a lot easier.




  1. Paper assembly line: No need to spend hours collating all of your paperwork (if the printer won't do it for you). Stack 'em up in the back and make a cute sign so parents know to take one of each!

  2. Movable snacks: Your carpet will thank you if you bring in clean treats that are easy to transport. No crumbs allowed! Also: water, water water.

  3. Post-It note parking lot: So many questions, so little time.  Have teachers leave questions on a special tri-fold board or wall for you to tackle when you don't have a gaggle of newcomers around you. Bonus: These would be great to answer on a FAQ class page!

  4. Parent sign-up sheets: You have them in the room; get them while you can! This is your best opportunity to wrangle some bonus helping hands throughout the year.

  5. Online accounts + expectations: Let parents and students know how you expect them to interact with you online, and how they can log into these accounts.
