On the first day of school I write my kids a letter telling about myself, and then their task is to write a letter back to me. It gives the kids something simple to do while I deal with parents, school supplies and any other first day hiccups. The letters are really fun to read, and I save to look at again at the end of the year, it’s amazing to see their growth. letter, school supplies, first week activities, teaching blogs, teacher, 1st day, school idea, first day activities, back to school

Today, we used adjectives to describe ourselves! First, I had the students use their white boards to brainstorm 7 adjectives. This allowed me to quickly fix their spelling as well as correct any words that weren't actually adjectives. Then, they made this project (copied their adjectives onto small pieces of white paper, drew/cut themselves out, and wrote their name at the top): adject activ, idea, school, student, white boards, self portraits, languag art, teacher, second grade
