I like to use a PowerPoint to go through some of the most important details of my classroom. This keeps me from rambling... but even with the powerpoint, I make sure to keep notes nearby. I discuss homework, discipline, special classes, and curriculum with parents so that they know what to expect in the coming year!
I saw this great idea at School in the City who got the download as a FREE download from Nicole Blunt of First Grade Owls.
How do you make your Back to School nights fun?
