Start the first day of school with a blob of play dough on each desk. The students can spend some time making whatever they please. This is a great way to help the students settle quickly, and also keeps them occupied while you answer parent questions/direct book list orders. After building time they can complete this worksheet.
Send the play dough home in a little tub or zip lock bag and attach our gift tag - a back to school gift and activity it one!
Create a back to school gift by attaching this gift tag to an individual tub of play dough, or a zip lock bag.
