What is the Back to School Survival packet?

Thanks so much for showing interest in my Back to School Survival packet! This packet was carefully created with preschool, TK, SPED, Young Fives, and kindergarten students in mind. This packet will offer the teacher a week’s worth of material to kick off back to school with fun + engaging material. The best part is the Back to School Survival packet will lower teacher stress so you can focus on what’s important the first week - - the kids! The packet covers six areas of the day: circle time, read aloud, school readiness camp, exploring centers, school supplies, and math (manipulatives).

I have KinderSurvival... Do I need this packet?

That is for sure your decision... however, I was careful not to duplicate material in this new Back to School Survival program! I originally designed this program for PREK. However, it was so K appropiate that I went with a generic packet name in place of Preschool Survival! You can for sure pair your KinderSurvival with this one! Your KinderSurvival program also contains the back to school night documents that are amazing and useful as well!
