Powerpoint Teaching Resources
for the First Day of School and Parent Open House





Back To School Powerpoint Lesson Plans for Elementary School Teachers blue bullet point Welcome to my Back To School powerpoint page that focuses on presentations to use for the beginning of the school year.

blue bullet point I have designed my powerpoint presentations to be engaging to your students. The powerpoint lessons on this page are designed with bright school backgrounds and animations.

blue bullet point I use funny and attention grabbing animations when I am designing my Back to School powerpoints lessons. I also use colorful school background templates for the powerpoint presentations that I prepare.

blue bullet pointMy Back To School powerpoint lesson plans have been designed using two fonts: Arial Black and Comic Sans. I chose these fonts because they are the most widely found on most computers, and they will not change the style and format when viewed on different computers.

blue bullet point Many students find traditional grammar and math exercises boring and dull. I encourage you to use these Back to School powerpoint lesson plans to bring life to these typically boring lessons.

Parent Open House Powerpoint for Back to School Elementary Teachers

blue bullet point Most teachers, even those with many years of experience, get a bit nervous about Open House and speaking in front of their students' parents.

blue bullet point I hope that this set of Open House powerpoint lesson plans will help you feel confident and well prepared when you make your Open House presentation to parents this year at school.

blue bullet point The 47 slides in this presentation, which contain numerous school related animated graphics, review the following topics:

  • Introducing Yourself (shown below)
  • School Day Routines and Procedures
  • Materials Needed For Class
  • School Subjects and Teachers
  • Homework
  • How Parents Can Help
  • Questions

blue bullet point There will be slides in this presentation that you will have to personalize and adapt to meet your own needs. (Example: In the above slide you will need to type in your name and grade level.)

blue bullet point You can delete slides that do not pertain to your class or add additional slides.

blue bullet point The first set of slides helps you to introduce yourself and there are two slides. The first slide (shown below) is for your name and the second slide (not shown) contains an area where you can type your teaching history, philosophy, or any topic that you wish to discuss. You could easily include a photograph of yourself on either of these slides.

Below is an example of the teacher introduction slide.


Parent Open House Powerpoint Introducing Yourself

blue bullet point The second set of slides covers school day routines and procedures.

blue bullet point I have used the general procedures that I cover with parents at my Open House, but I left the content areas blank for you to type in the procedures that are specific for you and your school.

Open House Parent Power Point for English Elementary School

blue bullet point The fifth set of slides reviews homework. For this set of slides, there is a title slide and the 5 days of the week: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

blue bullet point I try to establish a weekly routine that my students and parents learn to expect and get use to.

blue bullet point On certain days, my students may have English or Science homework, while on other days they may have Math or Social Studies homework. Of course, there are days when there are special homework assignments that do not fall into this general routine, but I try to follow a weekly homework routine whenever possible.

blue bullet point If you assign homework in a different manner, you could chose to adapt these slides to your own teaching style, or delete them if you do not want to discuss this topic during Open House.

Below is the Thursday slide for this set of homework slides.

blue bullet point I have used the general topics that I cover with parents at my Open House, but I left the content areas blank for you to type in the information that you would like to discuss with your parents.

  • Eating a healthy breakfast

Below is the title and introduction slide for this
set of slides that reviews How Parents Can Help.

I stumbled across your website over the weekend and I'm SO glad I did! Some great ideas and an extra thank you for the UK spellings! I bought the back to school pencils, punctuation puppies, Willy Wonka group project and the characters! I think these are great resources and even though it's the summer holidays, I've been into school to get my display paper up and have put up the title banners - they look brilliant! Thank you!

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I feel so fortunate to have found your website and I have referred several of my co-workers to your website. Just for the month of January, there were three teachers displaying your book reports. I had the trophy reports, my neighbor to the left had the computer reports, and my neighbor to the right had the birthday cake reports. Thank you so very much for all of your work!

Name: Mary (Grade 4)

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!
