Meet the Teacher & Open House NO PREP Activities

If you are getting ready for Open House then check out these NO and LOW prep activities. I have lots of experience with Open House, Meet the Teacher, and School Orientations. The best practices I have found are to be ready ahead of time with these simple tools: a flyer, a list of items you need {classroom donations}, and to show off student work. Meeting parents and students for the first time should be engaging and fun experiences for all. If you use these resources you will definitely have a great time!
