Going back to school is both exciting and stressful as a teacher. I always look forward to meeting my new kids and teaching them to love learning, but it's also so stressful to come up with meaningful (and fun) activities for the kids. Worry no more! This packet is perfect for back to school activities to serve your Kindergraten kiddos. It includes cross-curricular activities that span math, writing, reading, get-to-know-you, classroom procedures, community-building, and more! It also includes a 9 page back-to-school booklet:)

This packet has 68 pages of goodies. It's definitely more than enough to keep your kids busy for the first week (or even two weeks) of school!

This product is part of the Back to School Growing Bundle. Check it out before you buy this - you might like it better:)
