Working on School Stuff

Today I have been working on a few school things to prepare for the first day of school.  I like to get my students a first day gift.  It's a small way to help welcome them to my room.  My partner teacher and I both do this.  Today, I printed out the welcome label that I put on each bag.
Inside the bag I put a pencil that says 4th Graders are #1, a bookmark, a Capri Sun, and a small pack of chips.  We save the snack for later in the morning. 
I have been looking and looking for something to put student names on to put on my door.  I fell in love with these polka dot frames so I bought two packs just to use blue and green!  I added student names to each one.  I have lots leftover (purple, yellow, and red) and although I'm not sure what I'll do with them now, they'll come in handy sometime, I'm sure. 
On my last post I showed you the gift I was giving to my mentee (scroll below if you missed it!).  I added this little note to the frog today!
Today was my son's first day back to daycare, or "school" as we call it.  He's been going to the same place but of course, stays home with me during the summer.  We had a rough start, but he had fun once he started playing.  The look on his face says it all...Is it really time to start back at schoool?  Summer has gone WAY too fast!
I hope to make it my classroom on Friday afternoon to hang my posters up, drop off one more load of school stuff, and put the finishing touches on my classroom!  We only had two days next week at school before school starts and I know we'll be working on first week plans.  So, I need to completely finish my classroom ASAP!

  1. I may have to steal your back to school bags. Those are so easy and would mean so much to the kids. I like the Capri-Sun addition and a snack. Perfect.

  3. Transition is always hard for everyone! I think it is a great idea to have your son start school before you do--that way he can get used to the change before things get really crazy for you!
