headed back to school? Get rid of your first day jitters with this cute book and activity

love this idea for complimenting students and strengthening classroom community

Back to school FREEBIE! I hope you enjoy this “All About Me” mini-book! This is a cute and simple project that would make a great “first day of school” activity!

FREE Getting To Know You Activity! Send the bags home with the children on the first day of school. Have students share their bags whenever you have a few minutes here and there throughout the 1st week.

Students decorate a t-shirt template to describe themselves -- they can include pictures that represent what they like to do after school, their favorite foods, etc. Everyone gets a chance to explain why they decorated their shirt the way that they did. After everyone is done, I hang the t-shirts up on a clothesline in the room.

This is a great way to greet the students on the first day. The teacher gives each student a Meet the Teacher page and a goodie bag. There is also a student info sheet on each desk. This could be a great first assignment for students to begin working on as soon as they enter the room.

Minute-to-win-it Games, Great for beginning of the year or end of the year fun

Because the first days of school are crucial to a successful year, it is important that students start off the year getting to know each other. This small group cooperative project has students work together to make a dodecahedron. Kids LOVE this ! ($)
