This is a super cute activity packet I created for my own kiddos and those heading back to homeschool. Most of the activities could be used for a school classroom environment as well!
Fully stocked with lots of colorful activities to help jumpstart the new school year, this packet not only focuses on enhancing new skills (spelling, glyph, etc.), but reviews old ones as well (patterns, counting by tens, etc.). The packet also includes helpful formats for student and teacher ID cards for homeschooling families, memory making ideas (a first day of school portrait, child's goals for the year), several choices for workbox numbers, cute supply labels, and SOOO much more! :)
Here is a list of what is included:
*Student ID Card and Teacher ID Card Forms - you will need a program which can edit PDF layers for these OR you may use the blank forms provided to fill in the information by hand. Make sure to check whether your state has specific requirements for ID cards before using these. :)
*"Slippity-Doo, Slippity-Day!" A Counting by Tens Story and Activity
*First Day of School Portrait page
*Goals page - child writes or dictates individual goals for the year. Fun to keep and look back on years later when child is older.

*Homeschool Newspaper Formats – three different front page formats with the title "Homeschool Happenings" and three different front page formats with the title "Homeschool Herald". Two pages without title that can be used for an interior newspaper page. One style has more picture area and less text area for younger children. One page for toddlers (Tot Spot) so they can draw pictures and be part of the newspaper as well.
