This pack includes back-to-school activities that you can use during the first few days of kindergarten. Whether it's your first time teaching kindergarten or you've taught for dozens of years, you'll love this pack! This resource includes more than 20 activities that will save you tons of time planning for that busy first week, including no-prep printables that cover basic skills, three fun mini books, quick assessments, a first day award (that's editable), and much more! (Note: If you don't use the block print style of writing and need an alternative, I now have that available! The link is below!)
