    What if Everybody Did That? by Ellen Javernick This one should come standard with every primary classroom. The book goes through a day with a little one who does things without thinking, like feeding zoo animals despite the warning signs not to. He's got that same feeling that lots of kids do - that their actions won't make that big of a difference. But the community helpers in this book get him to think of what would happen if everybody did that. sounds fantastic!

A pretty cute idea for first day of school--then you can add in in their kindergarten memory books :)

A Rainbow of me: Put a pot of gold at the end and have your child write his name there. Of course, you can change the directions. For example, I would change the favorite sport team color option.

So cute-would love to read all of the student responses! Great first day of school activity idea!

Good beginning of the year activity for students. Use books "No David!" and "David at School" to discuss what is a good student?

First day class rules: I actually have this taped to the inside of my classroom door. After my students see these (and chuckle a little), my rules don't seem so bad.

This is a good way to introduce students and build community in the classroom. It is good for the beginning of the year so students can feel welcome and get to know each other. This aligns with the NYS teaching standard Element IV.1: Teachers create a mutually respectful, safe, supportive learning environment that is inclusive of every student.
