    First day of school ideas: time capsule

    the blog has all kinds of incredible ideas, and the time capsules are a lot cuter/creative than I expected when I read about them through the blog.

    Class management First days of school activity. This works well with 7 Habits activities!

    At open house parents put their wish for the year in it. I love this idea!

    Getting a classroom economy started on the first day of school. What to do with your students.

    First day of school sign printables. Scroll on the image and it changes to different grades to print

    First day of school ideas - love some of these! Like: balloons on the floor the first day, the 'bookworms' to eat while reading, library trip, fish crackers for each with note (you are o-fish-ally in ____ grade), special breakfast, and some others.

    Happy First Day of School!

    Great idea for meet the teacher

    Use with time capsule - such a cute gift for students at the end of the year.

    Placemats used as "spots" for circle time. Much easier to find than those carpet squares.

    Amazing first day of school activities for Kindergarten! A must read:)

    first day getting to know you game, kids love it when you put silly questions in that get them thinking creatively like: "If you we were a potato chip flavor which would you be and why?" or "If you were a raindrop where would you fall and why?" I think about using this throughout the year as well to see how they are strengthening their ability to explain!

    First week.... I let my kids paint a self portrait then I write their name in bold back marker and place it on the wall so they never have to ask how to spell a classmate's name.....they love it. AND....I just use the long construction copies!

    What a cute idea!!! They are glow sticks with a tag from the teacher wishing the students a 'bright' year for the first day of school. Love it!

    1st Day of School Pic Idea - Kindergarten Magazine cover. Have the kids fill out the usual "about me" worksheet on the first day of school and take a picture of them. When they come back next week, they'll find these on the walls. Cool take home for the kids and way to get to know their classmates!

    First Day of Fourth Grade Frame - Back to School Idea - But I think if I put the year with senior that would make for a great senior portrait frame

    Awww! This could be a great gift for the fourth graders from the fifth this spring. The 5th graders could write a note on the back of their 5th grade year.....

    This is a magnet for parents to put their child's work up on the fridge. The poem says: I made this special magnet on the very first day so that my first grade work will always be on display
