If you are like me, you have a love/hate relationship with the first day of school! I LOVE getting to know the new group of students and seeing them come in my freshly decorated room, but don't love the chaos of organizing, cleaning, meetings, etc. Well, this packet will help make that first day just a little easier! Included are a complete day's worth of lesson plans for:
Warm-up (summer reflection)
Math (Math about me or Math peer scavenger hunt)
Language Arts (new buddy interview)
Writing (Writers are Thinkers brainstorming, plus writing paper)
Content (Rule creation or Fire Drill preparation)
There are differentiated options for the lessons, along with a complete description of the activities, book recommendations, and any activity sheets you will need.
Enjoy, and as always, I appreciate your positive feedback!
