This beginning of the year pack contains a collection of first week activities and assessments. It includes Math and language arts based worksheets as well as "Get To Know You" activities and an All About Me poster. Great for back to school!

*Please Note: One of the activities was inspired by, The Important Book by Margaret Wise Brown. You do not need the book for the activity but it would be good to have it as a mentor text.
