What a smart way to use your first day of school! Have each kiddo make something with Playdough while you are taking care of the housekeeping (supplies, attendance, mini-conferences, etc.) Then have students write about what they made. Your kids are focused, and you end up with a beginning of the year writing sample!

Common Core for Parents... great for Curriculum Night or Conference Night. Great also for homeschooling parents to review for possible inclusion in their children's lessons. I think it would surprise many people how very much these ideas are already included in the homeschooling experience.

"Owl" About Me Posters for students. Cute and fun. Perfect to begin a new school year with an owl theme! $
