Product Description

This 88-page packet has everything you need to start off a fantastic year in first grade. This packet has everything you will need for your first week back teaching!

The beginning of the school year is such a fun and magical time for first graders (and for teachers, as well!). It is an important time to establish routines and make new friendships!

Your students will have a blast learning the rules of school with the help of The First Grade Experts (Respectful Rachel, Responsible Ryan, Ready to Learn Robert, and Really Safe Rita). Once your students become knowledgeable about the school rules, they will become the newest members of The First Grade Expert Club!

In this packet you will find:

  • an engaging story all about the members of The First Grade Expert Club
  • an application to join The First Grade Expert Club
  • four crafts that teach the rules
  • a special certificate to distribute to students once they become the newest members
  • fun ice-breaker games (including a "Be a Friend Detective" game and a "Getting to Know You" board game
  • an All About Me mini-book
  • read-aloud book suggestions for the first week
  • printables and lesson activities that correlate with many back-to-school children's books, including "First Grade Stinks," "Chrysanthemum," "David Goes to School," "Wemberly Worried," and "The Recess Queen."

Please ask all questions before purchasing. This packet is for PERSONAL USE only! Do not redistribute or sell as your own.

Thank you,
