Small Group First Weeks

Back to School Time!

Well, it's that time of year again when the world seems bright, there is a glimmer in every teacher's eye, and parents cannot wait to send their little ones to school! Ha!

But seriously, I am anxiously awaiting my first year at a new school. I have been in and out of my new building several times over the last few weeks and I still have TONS to get done. I know I am not the only one feeling excited, so I thought I would blog some plans I have used in the past to foster teambuilding and classroom mangement during the first week of school:

  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------WELCOME BAGS FOR STUDENTS
Book: Reading classic novels helps build your vocabulary and makes you smart beyond your years!

Medal: You are all winners in my book! Let’s work together as a team this year!

Silly Straw: There’s always a time and a place to be silly---we will have a lot of fun this year!

Sunglasses: “Your future is so bright, you’ve gotta wear shades!”

Lifesavers: I am your support in and out of the classroom and so are the other adults in the building and your classmates. Never feel weird to ask for help!

Hugs:    If your feelings were hurt, you had a bad day, not feeling so well…remember there is always a hug waiting for you!

Whistle: You have worked so hard to get to the end of elementary school—don’t “blow it” now! Keep your behavior and attitude in check and this will be your best year yet!
