PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use this 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.

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. This is a fun way to get the students motivated to start out the year on a positive note. The book can be referenced during the year when students have questions or problems arise in the classroom (no one wants to be my friend…well then just look on the page that says How to Make New Friends at School). The diary entries can be factual or fictional…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 important information for the whole year. It's a great way to get them back into school mode and writing.

Non-grade specific, it can be used in grades 2 - 4 to help students process all that information and then share it with parents. Have them write down important year long information, set goals, share memories with friends and get their parents involved, too.

The book can also be made into a 10 page booklet using Adobe Reader or Acrobat. Instructions for doing so are included. All printable pages use line art or grayscale for ink saving printing. Just print once and duplicate in a copy machine.

Please Note: the file is a zip file containing two PDF files. One file is for the teacher which has the instructions. The other file is the Student book.
