The teacher and students can come up with a list of characteristics of a great classmate. This can be used when introducing the unit's topic and can be left on the wall for the entire school year as a good reminder.

How I Spent My Summer Vacation Great to use at the beginning of the school year. Read the story, have students write recounts of an event from their summer (real or pretend, or as a 2 truths and a lie). Have students share their work and let the class guess whether it was true or false or which parts were true and which were false.
Back to School Picture Book with writing activity a great way to start discussion about the students' summer vacations.

What if? To start the year to introduce how to be self managers when the teacher is working with small groups.

What if? To start the year to introduce how to be self managers when the teacher is working with small groups. Would also be a great mini-writing activity/prompt to elicit silliness and creativity while ending with a simple daily solution. Great way to lead a staff development piece on setting expectations to support year long classroom management.
The "What if?" Anchor Chart has arrived just in time for school. Brainstorm all of the reasons why students might need to interrupt their teachers. Record solutions to their problems. You CAN have uninterrupted small group learning in your classroom. Plus have fun listening to all of their reasons. Validating their reasons is the first step to problem-solving solutions.

No cutting required! This foldable parent handbook template includes instructions for how to assemble your booklet. The booklet is made with 3 sheets of colored paper (6 sides total). The template includes 6 pre-labeled sections as shown in the thumbnail. Text boxes are already in place with some starter prompts for you to type directly into the document to customize your content.

Teacher friends - cute - Place cards made from erasers-would be cute on desks for the first day of school. I like this better than name plates... This is also a good idea for creating groups for students to get into when they first enter the classroom, if there will be an activity for students to do.
cute idea for a school party classroomcollective: Place cards made from erasers-would be cute on desks for the first day of school.
I used an exacto blade to cut slits in the pink erasers and then slid graph paper name tags in each one. Overkill? Perhaps, but I enjoyed looking at them. I used old navy blue text books from our collection as party props. Place cards made from erasers-would be cute on desks for the first day of school. I like this better than name plates...

The Worst Day of My Life Ever! (Best Me I Can Be) by Julia Cook, follow directions the first time. http://www.amazon.com/dp/1934490202/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_y..7rb08T0S3N
Will be using with listening worksheets found online at http://www.makinglearningfun.com/themepages/FollowingDirectionsDirectory.html to grow my students listening skills. The Worst Day of My Life Ever! Story about learning to listen and pay attention to directions.
RJ has had a rough day - he wakes up with gum stuck in his hair, misses recess because he's late to school, earns a zero on his math homework, kicks the ball into his own team's soccer goal, and messes up Mom's kitchen with his overflowing pancake batter! With his mother's help, RJ learns that his problems happen because he doesn't listen or pay attention to directions from her, his school principal, teachers, or even his friends. Ages 5-12
