This Back-to-School packet will get you through your first week or two of school! It is ideal for 4th or 5th grade students. The lessons include language arts, community building, and mathematics activities. Your students will have fun as they get back in the swing of things at school!

The bundle includes:
Getting to Know You Page with Interview Questions
Adjective Illustration "About Me" for each student
Several pages of math review, including skills such as multiplication, addition, and rounding numbers (to the ones and tenths place)
Solving problems with fractions
Mathematical word problems
Basic geometry and perimeter work
Journal writing prompts
A narrative writing activity entitled, "Favorite Summer Memory"
Math games to be played using dice
Getting to Know You games to build community
A parts of speech (nouns and verbs) activity
Synonym and Antonym usage with a thesaurus
Facts Versus Opinions
I use this packet throughout the first week or two of school. I don’t believe it should be given in one setting, as the kids would become quite tired! Instead, I break it apart to be used over several days. I also use the math games throughout the year, and make them progressively harder as we learn new concepts (such as multi-digit multiplication). Enjoy!!

**Please note: This lesson is also sold in my store bundled with the Common Core Opinion and Narrative writing lessons. Click on this paragraph to see that triple-bundled lesson plan! Please do not accidentally duplicate your purchase by purchasing both this product and that one.

Thanks for stopping by my store! :)
