What do I do on the FIRST day?
Whether you've been teaching 1 year or 20 years, we all ask ourselves the same question leading up to Back to School...
At the end of the school year when you have independent little workers, readers, writers, and direction followers...it can be hard (or painful) to remember what it was like waaaay back when, in the beginning of the year, your little honeys could not do ANY of that.
I think many of us (or maybe I am speaking for myself here) block it out and forget about what it was like on Day 1, until it's go time!
But... your room is ready!
After many years of tweaking my own first day plans, I have put together this easy-to-use pack of detailed, (and more importantly) realistic lesson plans and activities for the first day of K. Whatever type of population you teach this pack will be right for you. There is NO cutting involved on day 1 (that's like asking for it, amiright?) and the day focuses on getting to know each other, your school, and teaching routines and procedures for your classroom and school.
You will find that there are 100% EDITABLE lesson plans, lists of routines and procedures to teach, photos, printables, attention getters, and more!
Thanks so much! I hope you have a great school year.
