This packet has five activities that I've used on the first day of teaching 4th graders. There is a letter for students to read (you'll have to personalize that), an activity to help students to get to know one another, a following directions lesson and worksheet (that also gives a hint of a couple math skills) and two shorter fun activities. The short activities are in the area of math and logical thinking. Worksheets can be copied for distribution, but, again, the letter must be redone with your information. A successful first day of school sets the tone for the rest of the school year and I always want it to be positive for my students and myself. I hope this is helpful for your first day of 4th grade. This can also be used or modified in 3rd or 5th grade.
