The day after Open House/Back-to-School Night, my students are in awe that their parents were actually in the classroom and sitting at their desks the night before. (That is, if they didn’t come with their parent.) To prove it, I take pictures to convince my students that their mom or dad was really there. It’s fun to leave the photo on a child’s desk and see the reaction the next morning. If you don’t have time to print the pictures, take a group shot of everyone and project it on your SMARTBoard for your students to see as soon as they walk in!
