This will be my first year teaching second grade. I am extremely nervous about Back To School Night. I am worried that the parents will see me as a new teacher who does not know what they are doing. I want to ask volunteers to come to the room throughout the year for crafts etc, but unsure about how to ask this. I would also like donations of books, pencils, tissues, wipes etc since I have already spend SO much money myself. I do not have a classroom library of my own. Basically, I do not want to just lecture to the parents on my rules and expectations. I was thinking about making a powerpoint presentation. I also wanted the parents to leave something for their children in their desks. Any helpful ideas would be appreciated. Thank You!!
