This resource has been designed to help grade one and two students transition smoothly into a new school year. Teachers should aim for students to reflect on their time away from school, their new learning environment, their background and their learning potential.
How to use this resource: This resource has been designed for teachers to choose the worksheets that are suitable for their students and compile a Back to School booklet using the cover provided.
The independent worksheets would be ideal for morning work and the whole group activities would be ideal for the first few weeks as an orientation and discussion point for the year.
You also have five worksheets to use during your one-on-one teacher-conferences in the first few weeks. This is an ideal time to set expectations around achievement both academically and socially.
