What is it?
The Back to School Puzzle Pack is an ideal ice breaker for those week one jitters! Elementary and middle school students will have the opportunity to settle into your routine in a fun, non-threatening manner. These school-themed puzzles are a perfect way to welcome your students to the first days of school.
Why is it needed?
On the first day of school, you know the importance of getting your students engaged as quickly as possible. These three puzzles have easy-to-understand directions so students can guide themselves through. While they are quietly working, you are at the door greeting all your new arrivals and showing them where to stow their backpacks and lunches. These back-to-school puzzles will save you valuable time so you can quickly greet and settle in each child in your room.
How is it used?
This first day of school activity is two pages, and it can take up to half-an-hour to complete in class. After students have completed the puzzles, you can easily go over the answers with the provided keys. Alternatively, you can allow students to work on the puzzles throughout the day if they finish other activities early.
What is included?
Included in your PDF download are three first day of school puzzles with keys: a word search, a maze, and a word scramble. The back to school word scramble has two versions: one with a word bank and one without. This will enable you to differentiate among your students as needed.
*Please note that pages with a border will print with small, white margins.
