Meet the Teacher!

This is such an exciting time of year! It will be fun to meet all of you on Tuesday during Creekside’s “ Meet the Teacher”  Please  say “Hello” when  dropping off your school supplies!

10:00 – 10:30  Meet the Teacher for last names A through M

11:00 – 11:30  Meet the Teacher for last names N through Z

An additional item:  “Take home/bring back folder” ( A simple “Pee-chee”  style folder so that students can take home their daily work.)

The kids in room 164 manage their own supplies. I store any unused supplies until needed.
Directions for your school supplies:

  • Before you come to school, unwrap “the goods”. Please recycle packaging at home.
  • Parents, please use a sharpie to write your child’s name on:
    • Each box of crayons
    •  Each  glue stick*
    • Each bottle of Elmer’s glue
    • Marker box
    • Paint box
    • Twistables
    • Erasers

1)    When you arrive at our classroom, please help your child sort his/her supplies:

2)  Find your child’s tote. Put the twistables, markers, crayons, erasers, scissors, and Elmer’s glue into the compartments.

3)   On the whiteboard next to the calendar, you will find a ziplock baggie with your child’s name on it. Take it off of the whiteboard and put your child’s glue sticks in it. Then place it in the tub labeled “glue sticks”.

4)   Located on the whiteboard in the front of the classroom,  please find a tub marked “head phones”. You will find a ziplock baggie with your child’s name on it. Take the bag off of the whiteboard and put your child’s headphones in it. Then place it in the tub labeled “headphones”.

5)    Locate bins around the room for the rest of the “stuff”

6)    Make sure that your child has an opportunity to say “hello” and shake my hand.

Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday.
