First day of school lesson plans and first week of school support, plus all you need to have a successful first week of school!
What did I do last year for the first day of school? It seems every year I have to jog my memory…but not anymore! It is all here!
This easy-to-follow pack has 115 pages of everything you will need to start a successful first week of school.
Getting Organized will help you get organized the week before school starts. It’s filled with checklists and ideas on what you need to get done; from decorating your room to making sure you’ve got all the baskets you need. Show your students you care before they even step foot in your class by sending a student letter home! I’ve included a sample letter and editable letter templates!
Teacher Plans There are detailed plans for your first day of school. All you need to do is plug in the times. Use all the ideas or the ones that best suit you! I’ve included blank planning pages for the rest of the week too.
Classroom Management Ideas and resources are provided on what to do this first week. Set the stage for an engaging year by having high expectations and clear procedures! There are visual reminder cards for the procedures you’d like your class to practice including checklists to make sure you’ve addressed each procedure thoroughly. I’ve included scenarios to reinforce procedures you’ve been working on with your students.
First Week: Activities, Student Pages, and Materials Everything you need to make this week a success. I’ve included ice-breaker ideas, math ideas, trade books to read (not included), activities to do, fun take-home pages for the students to use and a colorful banner to welcome your students! While most of the materials and activities are provided, when relevant to the topic, I’ve added links to materials that are not included in this product. However, you do not need any of these materials, they are only additional suggestions.
