One of my favorite things about blogging is the collaborative nature of teachers who work together on activities and events in BlogLand!!
Mary at Sharing Kindergarten has organized a Back to School Blog Hunt, and all month long teachers are linking up to share a Back-to-School idea or freebie. And you can scroll down to the bottom of this post and find a collection of other bloggers who are also participating in the Hunt.
Today is August 13th, so that makes it Day 13 of the Hunt!
I always like to send home a Welcome postcard to my students before the new year begins. Sometimes, when class lists are still in flux, I put the card on the students' desks on the first day of school with their First Day pencil. Sometimes I do both! I have included the card I am using this year to share with you!
This freebie would be easy to use for those of you who have not yet started back. All you need to do is print, cut and sign. And for those of you who are already hard at work in the classroom, perhaps you can use the card for new students or even put it in your files for next year! A BlogPal suggested sending this home with your e-mail address or school phone number so that parents can have easy access to your contact information if they need it.

I still have a week to go before I return for "Teacher Days." I will be so happy to take the things out of my living room and get them into my classroom. It's becoming difficult to navigate in between the boxes and the piles!
So, whether you are already back with kids or getting ready to go back, I am sending along good wishes for a wonderful year!
