Back to School First Grade

Back to School First Graders! $ Filled with fun activities for the beginning of the school year.

I love doing about me bags. I had to do one for speech in high school. Students take a brown paper bag and fill it with objects that go along with facts about themselves. I would also have the students decorate the outside and then present it to the teacher and the rest of their classmates. This is great for the first week of school.
