Back to School Night is such an exciting time!!! You are meeting your classroom families for the very first time and sharing all the amazing things you have planned for the year.
I love to have my students help plan Back to School Night! One idea that was a huge hit was when I had my students create a movie for their parents to watch which highlighted our day together. The kids and parents ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!! I took video snapshots of the students throughout our school day. For each section I selected students/ "News Reporters" to explain what, when, how and why we do what we do!
Here are some tools you can use to create your own
