This is a fun back to school activities pack that should work well for 3rd, 4th, or 5th grades. The first day of school, or the first few days of school are a time of getting to know the routines of school and your new students' personalities. I am hoping this packet will help you and your students do exactly that.
NOTE: You can not get this product in a Back-to- School BUNDLED PACK at a reduced price by clicking HERE
The pages in this packet can be bound together to actually form a booklet (this is what I do), or you can use them page by page throughout the first week of school. Use them however you see fit in your classroom.
This Back to School Activity packet includes:
1) Cute Colorful Back to School Cover
2) Back to School Word Search - 24 words in all directions
3)School Rules Page- students work with a small group to devise rules to share with the class
4)Daily Schedule Chart to write in the daily activities - kids always like to know what the schedule is
5)Four sentences to complete, such as "Going back to school is exciting because..."
6)Border page (just for spare time) for kids to illustrate a picture of themselves having fun in the summer
7) "Two New Friends" venn diagram for 2 students to meet together to find out information about each other.
8)Questions for the teacher - great way to get kids talking on the first day. This one is a good one for them to do the first day they arrive for morning work
8)"All About ME" poster - I sell this for a dollar in my store, but I have included it in this packet. This is a nice poster to hang outside the classroom.
9)Literature - Read the story "The Important Book" and students will respond as they share something special/important about themselves. This is a story book found in most school libraries :-)
10) Literature - Read the story "How I spent my Summer Vacation" and students will write about a special memory from summer. This is a story book found in most school libraries :-)
Have fun with this back-to-school packet, as you get to know your new class.
