Parents Are Teachers Too!

Refrigerator Magnet

One thing I really want to focus on this year is making a solid connection between school and home to help my children grow both academically and socially. My theme for parents this year is "Parents Are Teachers Too!" I want my parents to know that I am going to do everything in my power while their precious little ones are in my care, but together with their input at home, we can make the biggest impact. One of the things I am going to do to begin this adventure with my parents is to give them a visual reminder each day! I created a "picture frame" below that students will use their first day of school to take a picture.

I will glue the picture onto a clothes pin that has a magnet on the back of it like this:

I got the clothes pin idea from 

This way every time I send home the packet full of work for the parents to sort through... the kids can help them and pick their favorite piece of work to display at home!

Tonight is open house! My open house blog will be out tomorrow!
