An amazing idea to add to a classroom as students who may not be seen and appreciated by the teacher can be appreciated by their classmates. This also promotes within a class as it is students praising students, meaning they are looking for good behavior.
Children write or draw their goals for the new school year and decorate the banners. You string them up and hang them around the classroom. They serve as a great reminder for students, too! There are two different banners included. Banner two has a kindergarten, first, and second grade version.
First Day of School Stations - Back to School Activity
Using stations on the first day of school sets the tone for the year. Show students that they will be out of their seats, engaged in learning, and collaborating with classmates in your classroom. These six stations, some group tasks and some independent tasks, are intended for completion within a 45-minute period. These stations can be used in any subject or grade level, and all of the station directions and activities can be edited to fit the needs of your classroom.
