I know…I know…most of us *JUST* got on break so the LAST thing we want to consider is next school year!  

Earlier in the year I was brainstorming was to make back to school less stressful and more convenient for teachers.  I decided to create some themed versions of my back to school forms…and the project just snowballed!

I began adding editable newsletters, an editable Open House Presentation and Classroom decor with MANY pieces that can be edited!  It was so much fun to work on!

This pack is Bug themed and is only $10!  I am considering making these as “custom” packs with the buyer choosing the digital papers and clip art and then I can make the items include below include the buyers choice in theme and clip art.  Does that make sense?  Would you want the pack below customized to your own theme?

  7 bug themed
forms for parents to complete for the back to school season. Please note these
forms are NOT editable. The forms include:
•Parent sign in sheet
that includes email (color and plain version for better printing included)
•How Do I Go Home form
for parents to write down his or her 
student’s way home. (color and plain version for better printing included) .  A premade version includes bus, care, daycare
and ASP.  An editable version is included
in the zipped file as well if your students go home different ways.
•Request of parent volunteers  (color and plain version for better printing
•Two different phone
documentation forms for the teacher to document communication. The parents fill
in the part of the information to save the teacher time and the rest of the
form allows for teacher to record parent contact.  One form is a full sheet perfect for the
teacher to store in a binder.  The other
form is one form that has two sheets that need to be copied on cardstock back
to back. Cut  the forms in half and hole
punch the corner to store on a binder ring.
•Class directory
request form
•Child information
form for parents to complete (please note this is a two sided sheet and should
be copied back to back)
All these forms save me a great deal of
time- especially the “How Do I Go Home” form because it gives a class
transportation list at a glance and the phone documentation form which  is VERY helpful for RTI and data collection!
