Back to School
This packet includes some forms and activities that will be helpful in the beginning of the school year. I left most of the packet as a word document so you can personalize it to your classroom and needs. The entire packet is also presented as a PDF in case your computer does not support some of the fonts. This packet includes:
Student interest inventory – Get to know about your students! They will answer questions about their home lives and some of their favorites.
Peanut allergy letter to parents
Two different journals for the first day of school – They can be modified for your school and class.
Welcome back to school labels – These are set up to be printed on 2x4 address labels. The can be peeled off and stuck on to baggies. Each baggie contains items to be represent a quality that will lead to a successful year.
“All About Me” poster – A nice poster to hang up before Open House.
Reflection journal for behavior issues
Cooperatives group activities with specific directions included
o Students are in groups of four and each have a role to play while designing a class mascot. The roles are Bossy Bob, Negative Nancy, Passive Patty and Danny the Distractor. Each student plays their part while trying to accomplish the task. It is clear after a few minutes that the job is impossible to get done. The class discusses the difficulties and then brainstorms what qualities cooperative should have.
