I am so excited to give these sweet little "Welcome Back" notes to my students! Since my day revolves around multiple small-group classes, I have students coming to me from other classrooms all over our school. While we establish great relationships within our small groups, I sometimes feel like it takes a while to get to that point; I only see them for 45 minutes each day, and it usually takes a couple of weeks before we start having class consistently, due to initial testing, scoring, and grouping that must take place after school starts. I am hoping these little notes will be a great way to reach out to my students and personalize their experience with me, even before they come to me for their first day of class.
I think anyone, in any classroom setting, could put these to good use: send them as postcards, use them on the first day of school, or include them in meet-the-teacher night packets! I have created them in an editable format, each with three text boxes that can be adapted to feature any information needed. They're also available in four different color schemes (including a black-and-white version) with three different clipart embellishments on each, providing 12 different note templates in all! The best part is that you can grab them for free in the Tally Tales TPT store! Hop on over, and grab a set. I hope they will be useful for you!
