I know a lot of you are getting ready to head back to the classroom. Are you excited to get to know those little honeys you’ll be sharing a room with for the next year? Did you know that one of the easiest ways to differentiate for your class is by interest, and one of the easiest ways to get to know your students’ interests is by having their parents tell you a little bit about your students before their first day of school.
Sometimes having just that little bit of an inside scoop on one of your students will be the difference between a student that you can ‘hook’ during those first few days of school and a student who struggles with the transition of a new school year. It’s all about making connections, and this is just a simple way to get a head start.
I have offered my readers an interest inventory before, but it was kindergarten specific and in color. I get that many of us are ‘color printer challenged.’ So, I decided to go ahead and make a general, non-grade specific, one in black and white.
So if you have first-grade teacher friends or pre-k teacher friends that can use it, please send them over and have them download this one. If you grab a little Astrobrights paper to print these off on, it will be super simple to organize all your back to school paper work.
