Open House is....Over

Last night I had my Open House.
What a LONG, but fun evening.

Here are some of my favorite highlights.

Mini Me Students
This is my signature Open House project I do every year. You can find my original post about these cuties {HERE}

Now I'm ready for an extended nap.
I always forget how exhausting Open House is.
It's over....until next year!

  1. WoW!!! Such AmAzInG energy for a May Open House!!! Those self portraits are ADORABLE!! Thanks for sharing.

    We just finished State testing last week . . . and I thought it'd be kind of a laid-back sort of week but with K registration, Shattered Dreams at FHS, retention meetings, etc., this week was busier than ever . . . and today we found out our Principal was moving up to Asst. Superintendent . . . ch-ch-ch-changes!!!

    Sending smiles for a successful summer countdown,


  2. What a friendly, inviting classroom. I love the mini-me students sitting at the desks.

  3. A 2nd grade teacher at my school does the same mini me project and I already told her I plan to steal it as soon as she retires! :-)

  5. I love the litter bug lounge! I think it's so great how you incorporated creativity but also a little of each subject for the parents to see!

    Now go take a nap! :)

  7. I truly love your ideas for open house. I am curious though why your open house is so late in May. We are getting ready to finish school. Are you a year-round school? I am definitely going to follow your blog. Thanks for the great ideas!


    1. Our Open House is a spring event showcasing our activities for the year. We have a separate event at the beginning of the year called "Back to School Night" to inform new families about our classroom procedures/grade level.

  8. Love all of these ideas! I've always wanted to try the Mini-me Students...maybe this will be the year! :) The Litterbug Lounge is adorable, too!! Thanks for linking up!
