In other news I finally got into my classroom and started moving in! Yay! The floors haven't been cleaned yet though so I can't really start to set up, but I am totally in school mode! I want to print and cut and laminate and cut and repeat! =] I am so excited, nervous, scared, thrilled and so on about the first day of school! So what better way to get ideas on what to do then host a linky! (This is my first time hosting and I am a little nervous, hopefully I can figure out how to do it!)Graphic is courtesy of The 3am Teacher!
First Day of School Activities!
One of the things I really hadn't thought of until I was reading my giveaway comments was taking pictures on the first day! One of my goals every time I enter a classroom is to know all of the students names by the time I leave the first day! This will definitely help me accomplish this goal! One teacher I know decorated her desk with pictures of her students that she took on the first day! It was adorable!
I also have seen an idea on interest floating around...
I really want to make this for my kiddos! Except it will say 1st grade instead of Kinder! Maybe a future Monday Made it! Not sure where the original source is, but if it is yours let me know!
So that is a first day activity I plan on doing in my class! Now it is your turn! Here are some ideas of what you can share!
*An activity you always do on the first day!
*A resource you made to use for the first day/week
*Anything else you do with your students on the first day!
I hope you are all having a great start to your week! If you feel like linky up I would be thrilled! A new teacher can always use ideas for the 1st day!Also, if you do not have a blog, but would like to share leave a comment!
