Welcome Letters to Students

by Helene Boller
(Batemans Bay N.S.W. Australia)

In the week before school returns I write to each of my students welcoming them to my class, telling a little about what I have done in the holidays and something about what topics we will cover during the year that are of particular interest.

Although I have already met the students during our whole school 'meet your new teacher' session at end of the year, I have found that the students get a real 'buzz' out of receiving a 'snail mail' letter addressed to them.

  • I extend the YES/ NO game by printing the DOLCH words (small print) ,cutting up the lists and laminating them & including them in the YES /NO packet. Use a blank card to put ?'s about these words e.g. how many times can you find these words in Chapter 2? Chn. list the results on a whiteboard.

  • The Sea words are great to add to the Lighthouse series books when you are doing these books with the children. you could extend the theme to the sea and then to pirates and far away lands and maybe even first contact explorers of Australia.
