First ten minutes of the first day of school can seem awkward! I want students to have something to do while we wait for everyone to put their gear away and get settled. This simple activity has worked well for me.

Happy First Day of School photo "booth" for students! Use velcro for 1st so you can change it to 100th or last too! # Pin++ for Pinterest #

New Books: More starting school titles!

First Grade Jitters... Perfect first day read aloud/discussion!

Use a cover slip when collecting assignments. Grade the assignment, record the grade on the cover slip, then pass the papers back to students. No alphabetizing papers for the grade book.--I also like that I would be able to see at a glance who didn't turn work in...

FREEBIE ALERT!! Free labels for supplies, this teacher used them to help organize the supplies the students brought in on the first day of school.
