SPED Summer Blog Hop Week 3: Back To School Forms and a FREEBIE!

Let's keep this blog hop party going!  Kyle from Kinder SPED Adventures organized this awesome blog hop.  This week we're talking about Back to School Forms.

I'll admit, this is not my strong suit.  My district sends home SO MUCH PAPERWORK at the beginning of the year that I feel if I were to send something home it probably won't be read.  With that being said, there are a few things I do send home at the beginning of the year because they're important to my program.  These are the things I find important to send home immediately:

  • Welcome Letter/Meet the Teacher
  • Bathroom Clothing Request
  • Reinforcement Survey
I have drafted a quick letter to send to the student's families.  Take a peek!



This is the first year that all of my students will be potty trained (woot, woot!), but we are still young learners and accidents happen.  I found this AMAZING resource (in English and Spanish) on TeachersPayTeachers.  I send it home in my beginning of the year pack.
I also send home a reinforcement survey.  This is the most important form I send home.  I like to ask parents what it is their child likes.  I need to know what my students are going to work for this year.  Sometimes student's like obscure things that I never would have guessed.  So I send home this reinforcement survey (I revamped it a little this year) and keep it in my student files.  If we have behaviors pop up, I will pull out the reinforcement survey to see if there is a reinforcer we haven't tried before.  Click on the image for a copy!

These are the forms I send home immediately as school starts.  After Back To School Night I send home a class supply wish list and a parent volunteer questionnaire.  What do you send home?

Make sure you hop back next week so you can see how I work with my paras!


Now hop over to Christine's blog to see what she recommends for the beginning of the year!

  7. I love to do an introductory letter. I may make mine even a little more personal like yours. I like how you include fun facts about yourself!
