Friday! Friday! Friday!
WAIT..it's summer...EVERY day is Friday..or whatever day you want it to be! Just 5 more days for me...so I'm gonna love up on some Friday, for sure! :)
So, I'm a little late for Throwback Thursday, so we'll call this Throwback Friday.
My parent handbook has gotten the single most pins on Pinterest, and I get a lot of emails for a template.
I don't have a template because, truth be told, they are hand-made with some old school scissors and tape.
My first year teaching, I worked with a lady that had been making these for 30 years. She showed me how to do it, and I've been making them ever since. It's just some old school cut and paste, but parents really LOVE them every year!
So, I decided to create a little tutorial so y'all can make them for yourselves :)
There are 10 steps, so bunches of pictures to come.... you've been warned!
HERE is the link to the PowerPoint with the defined boxes already made for you. It's not a PDF so you can use it as a template to make your own book/content. There are no "cute" fonts or anything, but I've provided you with the boxes to fit the pages.
And there you have it... . A Back to School Parent Handbook, customized JUST the way you want it ! :)I put these out on Open House night & then send them home on the first day with the kids who weren't able to make it. It explains EVERYTHING about our classroom, provides parents with contact information, and alleviates a lot of questions. I love it, and the parents do, too!
I hope I have answered your questions about how to make these & it all makes sense. Thanks to Khrys for letting me use her handbook creation for the tutorial....and her SUPER cute KB fonts! If you'd like to check out these fonts, you can get them at her TpT store here.
If you have any more questions, please feel free to email me!

Happy Weekend, friends.....
