Love this idea for the first day of school! Have the kiddos make something with playdough while you are taking care of first day housekeeping (supplies, etc.) Then have students write about what they made. Great for the 1st item in their writing portfolio!....My kiddos could draw or try to write what they made...that would turn it into a good assessment tool for me, too!

This is a great way to greet the students on the first day.  The teacher gives each student a Meet the Teacher page and a goodie bag.  There is also a student info sheet on each desk.  This could be a great first assignment for students to begin working on as soon as they enter the room.  2366
