Editable Parent Presentation Pack (free file)

Hi again! I'm back to share an editable file I used for Open House this past week. I know many of you have had your events already, but I hope this is something you might be able to use in the future! And if you have an event coming up soon, I really hope this will be of some help :)

So, there are a couple of printables in this pack. There are some editable, business-card sized labels...
I attached mine to magnets like my good friend Mor (from A Teacher's Treasure) did...they look a little funny because I erased some of the information, but you can get the idea.

I left the magnets out on those bright yellow folders (I always try to find the brightest color possible, so the families can find them when needed at home...these folders hold Math and Language Arts information for our district).

They are set up for easy customization, just type right into the text boxes...
I also left out a little half-sheet of paper, in case the parents wanted to leave a note for their child (not my original idea, just something that's commonly done at my school)...
The pack also includes a Powerpoint presentation to share with your families. I love using a presentation during Open House because it keeps me on track, no matter how nervous I might be!

There are slides for each subject area, classroom procedures, specials schedule, and more...
Each slide is set up with text boxes, so all you have to do is type in your information...
There are also duplicate slides, so hopefully you will have the subject name you need (such as Spelling and Word Work). Any slides you do not need in the file can be deleted before your presentation.

And that's it! If you would like to see more or download this free file, please visit either of the shops below...

Have you had your families in to visit yet? Does your event take place right at the beginning of school?

  8. Kristen, thanks for sharing this! Our Open House (Group Conference) is always sometime in the first month of school. I use a PowerPoint too. There is just too much to remember to try to do it without it. I use one of the basic PowerPoint templates. Now that you have shared this, though, next year my PowerPoint will be super cute! BTW, I love the graphics!

  21. This looks great! We had Open house a few weeks ago but I will definitely use it next time. I love the magnets. I bought a bunch from Vistaprint two years ago so they would last for a while then my district changed our emails. Yours look much better! Thanks for sharing Kristen!

  26. Hi Kristen, I do the magnetic business cards too. They are a great way for the parents to keep in touch. I was wondering though what is the font that you used on the cards and in the presentation so I could download it in order to keep it the same. Thanks a bunch! Can't wait to use this in the upcoming year :)

  27. Hi Kristen. Would you happen to know off hand what font was used in this PP? There are a few things I would like to add to the PP but I noticed I can't change the headings on the slides. I'm super anal so I want all the slides to match as far as font goes. Thanks in advance :)
