Back to School Letters from the Teacher for Students and Parents:
This welcome back to school file includes a letter that teachers can send home to parents and a letter that teachers can send home with students. Each letter comes in a variety of border choices and black-and-white versions.
THE BODY OF THESE LETTERS ARE NOT EDITABLE. THERE ARE EDITABLE FIELDS IN THE GREETING AND SIGNATURE ONLY! If you are looking for a letter with an editable body, this is NOT the product for you!!
This welcome back to school product includes a letter that teachers can send home to parents and a letter that teachers can send home with students. Each letter comes in a variety of border choices and black-and-white versions.
- The letter to parents comes with a boy, girl, and gender-neutral version (the pronouns are changed throughout the letter). This letter has three color background options and the corresponding backgrounds in black and white.
- The letter to students comes with three color background options and the corresponding backgrounds and clip art in black and white. Note: This letter does not require gender options since the teacher uses the pronouns “you” and “I” throughout the letter.
All versions of each letter have editable text boxes in the Greeting Field and the Signature Field. You can edit these two places on each letter if you choose. THE BODY OF THE LETTER IS NOT EDITABLE!
BOTH Back to School Letters from the Teacher ARE ORIGINAL! I have NOT copied a letter that I found online and retyped it. This is important because you may want to mix things up and send a new letter home this year.
If you have any questions about this product, please ask before purchasing. If you aren’t sure how to edit text boxes, I’ve included a page of instructions at the beginning of the product for your convenience.
Did I mention that the BODY OF THE LETTERS ARE NOT EDITABLE? 🙂
This PDF file includes 34 pages + Google Slides.
