Product Description
Use this fun back to school resource to have your students remember all the school rules, class procedures, your expectations, and school information you give out during the first week of school.

*******UPDATED 5/2017

How it Works
As you start your first week of school, have the students complete diary entries as you introduce routines, schedules, rules and build community. Use this book as a fun way to get the students motivated to start out the year on a positive note. Reference the book during the year when students have questions or problems arise in the classroom (no one wants to be my friend then just look on the page that says How to Make New Friends at School). The diary entries can be factual or fictional or make them funny or serious!

There is also a Parent Message and Response page. Once the book is complete, send it home for parents to view and respond back with questions or suggestions.

Have them put it all here in this Diary of a Back to School Kid book that can be used as a handy resource to remind your students of all that valuable information for the whole year. It's a great way to get them back into school mode and writing.

Since it is not grade specific, use it in grades it grades 2 - 5 to help students process all that information and then share it with parents. Have them write down the important information, set goals, share memories with friends and get their parents involved, too.
