B2S Must Haves-
#1- My Silhouette machine has been so cool this summer. I have made student behavior guitars, Calendar words, and some labels. I love, love, love it!
#2- The laminating machine. I use the one at our school- we pretty much have free use of it and I take advantage. I know that some of you have your own laminators and that is sooooo tempting. I would love to have it at home, but while I can use my school's as much as I need, I'm going to stick with the free option!
#3- This will be my first year doing Daily 5 in my classroom, so I have a feeling my Daily 5 book will be stuck to me like glue! I have read it once and I'm working on a second time. I'm excited & nervous about implementing it for the first time.

Do you have parent volunteers in your classroom? I have never really tried to recruit parent volunteers before, but I am going to have a large class this year (27) and I want to explore my options. I know that my superintendent would be okay with parent volunteers in the room as long as they aren't doing any assessments or grading. I would like to invite parents to volunteer, but I'm not sure where to start.
How are you able to recruit volunteers? Do you ask specific people or just send home a request with all students? What exactly do you have your parent volunteers do in your classroom?
I would love to hear from others how you handle this in your classroom. Thanks! :)
