Bags at the dollar store for each student to store their independent reading books, reading response notebooks, writer's notebooks, word work notebooks, post-it notes and a pencil.

Another icebreaker activity. This worksheet asks the students about their summer. The students could fill these out on the first day of school and then share them with the class. Transition from summer to the classroom is often difficult so allowing the students to reflect on their fun times will make the transition easier.
