    Crazy for First Grade: Back to School- The First Day in First Grade!!!

    On the first day of school, ask students what they would like to see in their lessons every day. It's great to have student input in your planning!

    I roll it into balls (one for each student), poke a small hole in each with my finger, add a few drops of food color and then cover the hole. I then place each ball into a ziploc bag and put a bag at each child's seat for their arrival. After they arrive I instruct them to squish up the bag to see what happens. They oooh and ahhh over the "magic".

Then save 'till the last day of school and have them open it and do the exact same activity! I was thinking maybe to hold it until graduation. :)
