Meet Your Teacher Day Treat
We have all heard the saying....
you only have one time to make a good first impression.
Well, this is true with meeting your students, too. Did you know that some research shows that people form an opinion of you within the first 90 seconds of meeting you.
HELLO!!! You better make it a great 90 seconds. :-)
If this stands true with students meeting a teacher then they are going to either walk away from 'meet your teacher day' grumbling that they have the meanest teacher, or they will walk away smiling and thinking they have the best teacher in the world. Let's face it, in a kid's eyes, those are about the only two choices.
For me, I want them to walk away thinking they have the coolest, most creative, and fun teacher EVER!!! So, I start working on creating that caring classroom environment the very first time I meet the kids. Not only do I have the room all arranged and decorated and put a smile on my face, but I usually gift them with a little something to make them feel special. It's not much... just a little treat. This year, I have a movie theme going on in my classroom, and to go along with that theme I created a card to place on a baggie of popcorn or other special treat.
This treat sheet doesn't have to be used exclusively for a movie themed classroom, as it would work in any setting in order to make a new student feel special. If you would like to try gifting your new students with something special, feel free to use this FREE movie themed printable teacher treat sheet in your classroom. If you don't want to use it on the 'meet your teacher day', you could even use it the first day of school.
