Apple Back to School Letter

Happy Back to School!!!

I loved sending out back to school letters to my new Kindergarten children about 2 weeks before school started.  They were so excited to get a letter in the mail just for them.  Here is an apple back to school letter I used one year.


Dear little apple seed,

Welcome to the apple orchard!  I am the caretaker of the apples, and I am glad that you are in my class this year!  Please meet  me in the orchard on _________________ at _________________.  We will be growing and learning together and having so much fun!  You will be learning to do math, to read, to write, to sing fun songs and to play! I will see you on the first day of school.  Be sure to wear your apple name tag and be ready to have a great time!

Can’t wait to see you!

Love, Mrs. Wilson


It was fun to greet each child at the door! Of course they were wearing their apple name tag that I had sent in their back to school letter. (I was sure to have extra apple tags that I could put their name on if they had forgotten or lost their’s.) Any apple pattern would do for the name tag.  I copied these apples on red card stock for mine.

I had my room decorated with all things apples, including examples of any art projects I was planning to do in the next few weeks, plenty of apple trees and apple activities.  I had apple sauce cookies for a treat and plenty of apple books to read to them.

All in all, it was a very successful first day of school for these lucky Kindergarten children and their teacher!
