Do you find yourself asking, "What I'm I going to give the students first thing on the first day of school?" I've created this Beginning of the Year packet for you! All you need to do is copy and staple. Have this packet on their desks first thing the first morning. This will allow you to visit with parents, while the students are busy writing and creating information about themselves. After the first day of school morning has settled, you can gather your students together to share what they wrote about themselves. Then tuck this packet away in your classroom notebook for future use.
