Product Description
A back to school book companion for You're Finally Here by Melanie Watt with a FULL first week of fun! Filled with back to school activities for getting to know you, games, writing opportunities, adorable (and hilarious) class anchor chart, and character craft it also includes a bulletin board which doubles as a first day photo booth with signs to hold for grades K-4 and Prep Year -Year 3. *Note: I have added 4th grade photo booth signs and writing templates that do not appear in the Preview.

Based on the book, You're Finally Here, by Melanie Watt, author of the Scaredy Squirrel series available online at Indigo Books and Amazon Canada. See direct links below.

Here's how it works:

The very impatient, and often bored, bunny of a book character is waiting and waiting for his readers! When they finally arrive he is overjoyed! I've created this unit to accompany the book and convince my new class that, just like the book character, I've been waiting, and waiting, and WAITING for them to arrive! Included are lots of fun, first day of school and all week long activities for reading, writing, and getting to know new friends. The unit also includes a fun student booklet for students to explain what took them so long to get to your class, getting to know you partner and team games, a prewriting chart with all of the chart parts, a goal setting writing craft, 2 bulletin board displays with time saving teacher's notes, title lettering and directions for making the character, first day desk notes, a roam the room activity, and photo booth signs for a first week keepsake card for parents. My class LOVED it and I know yours will too!
