First day project: Friend Tree. Everyone puts their thumb print on the tree then teacher later frames it and hangs it as a reminder that we are all friends.

1st Day of School- a good way to hear what they did over the summer and to get ideas on what they are looking forward to that school year

First Grade Honey Bunch

at the beginning of every month, everyone starts off in the homework club. If they turn all their homework in on time, then they get to stay in the club! If they don't then they are out of the club. Students who turn all their homework in for the entire month get to come to our monthly homework club lunch.

First Day of School Writing Activities

Personalized Bookmarks- neat start to school gift

All About Me Pennant. Back to school activity!

This year I put out items that parents could donate to our classroom if they would like. The sign read: "Please pick an apple (or two), if you are able to donate supplies to our classroom!” The apples had the item listed on it that could be donated and where it could be found. I had many parents leaving with an apple this year!

Teaching Personal Space ~ cute idea

would be a fun first week of school activity - especially since my kiddos already know a lot of the typical "get to know you" stuff about each other

Grace is Overrated: journal pages

Start of the year and then do what do you think a teacher wants in a student

What kind of teacher do you want?

Love this idea...

Change number ~ cute idea

This lady is awesome - she posts her lesson plans and has printable templates for each activity. This particular idea is called 'Hall Heads' - clothes pins hold the work and writing is interchanged in the hallway! GREAT IDEA!
