This “First Day of School Script” is a detailed hour-by-hour and step-by-step overview of what to do as a classroom teacher on the first day of school. The script includes logistics and planning (e.g., playing soft music for student arrival in the classroom), suggestions for activities, and procedures and expectations to review with the students. Everything a new or experienced teacher needs to know for planning for the first day is contained in this script! Even experienced teachers may be reminded of some things and given new ideas for activities.
Tips are also provided for how to stay organized throughout the school year (e.g., using a numbering system for cubbies, books, and gradebook).
I hope this Script will be a great time saver for you! This script has developed from my years of experience teaching 5th grade, and I am happy to share it with you to help you make your first day of school a breeze!!
