To help with this transition, we hold a "Meet Your Teacher Breakfast" at the beginning of each year.
This year, we did an owl theme asking "Whoooo's your new primary teacher?"
Invitations were sent out:
The church was decorated:
She also made balloon owls that we hung up.
We had the teachers sit and eat with their new classes.
Each table had a questionnaire to be filled out. It was really a Mad Libs.
After everyone chatted and ate, I read the completed Mad Libs and we found out some very interesting things about our new teachers. It was a HOOT!
Last year we had the "Primary Awards", a spin off on the academy awards. The kids came up with the award categories such as "most likely to give hugs".
The year before that we had a dress up your teacher contest.
These activities are always a lot of fun. The kids and teachers both look forward to them every year.
Anyone else have some great "Meet Your Teacher" ideas? I'd love to hear them so we can start planning for next year.
Thanks for stopping by,
