First Day of School Activity

Jenn S-This is a really good first day of school activity because it helps the teacher see what the students want in a teacher. The students will feel like they have a voice in the classroom and the teacher will know what the students want to see.
Start of the year activity and then do what do you think a teacher wants in a student. Gives everyone an idea of expectations.
Beginning of Year Activity - a good extension might be... What kind of student/friend do you want in your class? Then draw some parallels between teacher/student expectations.
First Day of School Activity. I'd follow it with a "what kind of student do teachers want?" brainstorm to get the message of a mutual expectation across.
What kind of teacher do you want? Read this with "Miss Nelson Is Missing!!" :) Good first day of school activity.
What kind of teacher do you want? This would be interesting to do on the first day of school.
What kind of teacher do you want? Love this for a first day of school discussion!

Today was Aria's very first day of school! Its a bit strange to think that every day she'll be spending most of her time NOT with me, when for the past five and a half years she has been with me almost constantly. What will she do all day when she's at school? Maybe a little more concerning, is what will I do? We are so blessed to have some fabulous friends with daughters also entering Kindergarten this year, and all these friends are going to be in class with her! How exciting! Here's a couple photos we took to commemorate this special day... SO sad that this one is out of focus! I may have to re-stage it and try again! A little meltdown because the sun was burning her eyes. What a face! Here's some back to school photo ideas I found through Pinterest. I would have loved to have done the chalkboard idea, but sadly, do not have a little chalkboard. The paper idea worked well for us, and maybe I'll get Aria to decorate it and then include it in her Kindergarten scrapbook. 1. Inchmark had a super easy to do photo idea. This was the idea I used to do Aria's photos, combined with the one below... 2. Chickabug has some free printables to do these great photos. I like the idea of consistency and adding in the teacher's name from year to year, so I opted to make my own signs. 3. Zoot had a great way of recording all your child's favorites for the year right on the photo. A great insight into who your child is in that year of school. I just remember filling out my "School Days" portfolio (the blue book with pockets for each year of school) with things like who my friends were, what I achieved that year and what I wanted to be when I grew up... 4. Sugar Bee Crafts has a tutorial on making a chalkboard sign tutorial. I didn't know there was chalkboard spray paint. I may need to go and check that out! 5. Ashlee Raubach Photography did a photo shoot for her son's preschool class! SO CUTE! We did something like this for a family photo shoot last week, and we're super excited to see the pictures! This would be fun to do at a birthday party or with your child's closest friends.

You could change the letters to say just about anything...Merry Christmas, September, one for each month. I am going to the resale shop and buy and old frame and spray paint it, probably black so it will go with everything. The letters will give it character. I am going to use sticky tac to adhere the letters.

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. I could even use it at open house and let the parents join us since we're all a team.
Thumbprint, Teacher Gift, Guest Book
Thumb print guest book. Would be fun for Thanksgiving or a family tree. OR do classroom thumbprints for teacher's gift!!
I LOVE THIS. Originally a thumb print wedding guest book, but I made one for the past school year. Each student got to have a thumb and index finger printed. Final result looks great!
"Leaf" your thumbprint with this alternative to a regular guest book. Have a custom guest book fingerprint tree made just for you. This Guest book fingerprint tree is perfect for weddings, baby showers, anniversary's, and and family event.
finger print project, so cute, could maybe do it like a family tree and put the names of the the family members beside the thumbprint.
finger print project- i love this idea as a shower or wedding guest book or even do a family tree.
Thumb print guest book. Would be fun for a family tree. I'm thinking Family Reunion event. :)

convo me about other styles and sizes shown "Leaf" your thumbprint with this alternative to a regular guest book. Have a custom guest book fingerprint tree made just for you. This Guest book fingerprint tree is perfect for weddings, baby showers, anniversary's, and and family event. Have your thumbprint guest book tree made to fit you and your event. I create any style to fit your needs or feel free to ask me for suggestions. Having your guest "leaf" their thumbprint and signature on your guest book tree is the perfect addition to your event and especially your home!
Building Classroom Community
Building a classroom community is very important and is an indicator of success. Icebreakers and other activities are important to implement during the first days of a new school year. It is important for all students to feel welcome and a part of their small community which actually a part of an even bigger one. Feeling comfortable will help create resilient learners that have confidence in sharing their ideas without fear of being judged.

Mrs. Heeren's Happenings: "Me Bags" - First Day of School Cute activities for the first week of school.
"Me Bags" - First Day of School idea only plan to do a "me canvas" and paste little things on the canvas that says "who" they are.
"Me Bag" The students' "homework" for the first day of school is to fill up a brown paper bag with 5 or 6 things that are important to them. Over the next several days, they take turns sharing their bags with the class and talking a bit about themselves.
"Me Bags" - First Day of School idea
Star Student / First Day of School
1st week of school
The students' "homework" for the first day of school is to fill up a brown paper bag with 5 or 6 things that are important to them. Over the next several days, they take turns sharing their bags with the class and talking a bit about themselves. It's a fun, easy way for the class to get to know each other a little better! Before the first day of school, I print off "Me Bag" poems and staple them to the top of the bags. Click the photo to download a copy of the poem labels! I found this poem online years ago, but have NO clue who to give the credit to! If you know who deserves credit for the original idea, please let me know! :) See my earlier Bead Glyph post for another fun, First Day activity!
I met a HUGE summer goal yesterday and entered all of my Professional Development hours online! I'm not sure what the requirements are for other states, but to renew our license, Indiana teachers are required to submit the number of hours, a brief description, and scanned documentation for each professional event on the "LVIS" site. Thanks to my principal, the organized person she is, she suggested we keep a log of hours/meetings we attend throughout the school year. It wasn't fun entering all of those hours, but it sure was a lot easier with everything already documented! I recreated my PD Log for next year. Feel free to download the form below if you could find it useful! Free Fuzzy Bump Border from Frog Spot graphics On another note, I wanted to share a few of my fun purchases! I have always wanted a microphone/speaker system of some sort for my classroom. The possibilities for its use are endless (i.e. sharing Star of the Week, reading, presentations, etc.). I also think it could be a really good motivator. I did a little searching online last year, but couldn't find anything wireless or affordable. Well, I found a system on Amazon last week for only $70! Since it was so inexpensive, I was a little worried about the quality, but it came in yesterday and works perfectly! I'm so excited to use this in my classroom next year!! Here's the one I bought: I sure hope it lasts......yikes... Also....did you know that Skippyjon Jones is at Kohl's!?? It's a $5 Kohl's Cares item by the checkout lane! They have books, too! If you love Skippyjon, you better make a trip soon! :)
Classroom rewards, NO TREASURE BOX, I am doing this next year!
