Back to School Ideas

Hi All! I hope you are having a fabulous summer!  It always goes too quick, especially when you have to make up 6 days, thanks to power outages and snowstorms...ugh!  It makes summer seem so short.
Well, I just wanted to post a few ideas for the beginning of the school year in case you are starting to get back into it!  I always like to do name necklaces the first day of school so students can get to know one another and I can learn names quickly!  Also, in the past I have had students design a star with their likes and then I place them up on a bulletin board for Open House. They always come out so cute! 
One other activity I have my students do is to complete, "A Book About Me" the first week of school.  I find it so helpful in seeing the student's skills and to see who can work independently.

  1. I found your blog and TPT store from a search on the TPT site for other Massachusetts sellers (like me!). I'm so happy to have found you! I follow your TpT store! I can't figure out how to follow your blog though!?

    I'm excited to continue connecting with you :)

  2. Hey there! I'm so glad you found me! I just checked out your TpT store too, and I am now following your store. I am definitely new at blogging and still experimenting!

    Thanks again for reaching out! It's great to hear from another MA teacher! :)
