These 1st day of school activities will make back-to-school a breeze.
Here's everything you need for a successful first day. There are a total of seven PDF download files:
2. A word search
with a back-to-school theme and a scoring key.
3. A personal information worksheet
so students can share important details to help you get to know them faster.
4. A fun writing prompt
that will help you assess their writing skills.
5. A homework sheet for parents
. It focuses on what they want you to know about their child.
Also, I include a simple way to get your students organized using my "magic box" approach. It makes new students feel special before the first bell even rings!
6. Magic box slips to draw.
7. Table tents that match the slips.
