Hello! Today I am linking up with Chrissie from the Undercover Classroom. We are sharing tried and true ideas for the first day of school. Head to the link-up to get lots of new ideas for your first day of school.
I am currently working on getting a bunch of my first day activities up on TPT, so hopefully I get get those up there within the next week or two. I decided to post my first day schedule so you can see exactly what I do. The first day is a LOT of procedures and routines. Let me know if you have questions about any of the things I do!
When I was teaching, I got pretty much all of the books for my class library from garage sales. You can find KILLER deals. One year I found The Recess Queen. This is such a great story to help go over recess rules and appropriate behavior with your class. In my pack I am going to include a "Who, What, When, Where, How, Why" retelling page, a page where you can write your own recess rules as a class, a page for students to write ideas of what to do when someone is mean or bossy, and many more. It will be a great resource! Here is a sneak peek at one of the pages from my Recess Queen pack:
If you want to be notified when this pack is available, follow my store on TPT by clicking the picture above and then clicking "follow" on my page.

Good luck with back to school! Hopefully some of my ideas will be helpful to you!
