Believe it or not, I go back to school this week! This week is a teacher week and the kids start next Monday. This summer went SO fast and I am going to really miss spending lazy days with my daughter! BUT I am excited to meet my new first graders and get them excited about this year. I try to keep them busy the first week and help them learn our routines by making a "Back to School" book. Parents have told me so many times how much they LOVE this book and consider it a first grade keepsake. You can check out the book here.
This book takes us about a week to complete. (We do not do literacy stations the first week so this is a great activity for that time period.)
When the completed book goes home students/parents have reference to our specials schedule, daily classroom schedule, our school's VIP's, graphs with information about our classes boy/girl ratio, how many students are 5, 6 or 7 a class picture and much more!
Check back later this week, I will be posting some Meet Your Teacher Forms as freebies!
