Beginning of the Year


Happy Wednesday!  I hope your week has been off to a great start.  This summer I have been spending time contemplating on what to change for this next school year.  It is hard to fathom that I am already thinking ahead and haven’t been out of school for the summer for very long.


There are several different activities that I like to do the first week of school that gives me a chance to know my students a little better and helps to create a classroom “family”.


One  of my absolute favorite activities is an “All About Me” sack.  I have done this activity personally in my own classroom for more years than I can remember.  I give each student a bag for them to fill with 5 items from home.  We share the bags during the week. They absolutely LOVE sharing!


Here is a copy of the activity.  You can now download it for FREE at: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Itsy-Bitsy-First-Grade-Teacher

I can't wait to share more soon.  I will be adding a new packet to my blog tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by.   Enjoy the rest of your week! Smile 


Blessings,
