Challenge your students with this activity on the first day of school. It can be used as an eye opener or as a day closer. Students must write words in the chart which begin with the letters in the words FIRST DAY as in the first day of school. There are 5 categories. Students should be encouraged to use reference/resource materials located in the classroom for answers as well as to check their spelling. This would also be a great activity for those students who complete their work early or for the gifted and talented students in your classroom. It might also be assigned as a first day homework assignment.
