This pack includes three days of lesson plans for a first grade, balanced literacy block. These plans can be used to teach the first three days of school, but it could even be used during the first few weeks of school. It includes read aloud book ideas, whole group interactive writing ideas/templates, independent writing activities, poetry for shared reading, multiple getting-to-know-you actifvities, and a song to do together. This document is in a PDF format to make sure that the visuals are correctly organized upon opening, but if you leave me a comment I would be happy to email you the Microsoft Word version so that you can easily go in and adjust or add anything that you would like. I'm excited for you to start your first grade school year with these fun activities! Happy Teaching!
