Back to School may look a little different this year but we still have to start somewhere! These printable activities are a stress free way to plan your first days of school.
If you are anything like me…. you totally feel the need to over prepare for the first days of school. Before you meet your new kiddos it is hard to anticipate the pacing of working with this particular group of students. After 20 years of first days…. none were ever alike! This year in particular will be different from any other back to school season! Having a collection of activities ready to print and go for the first days of school can help make it a little less stressful. Whether our students have to remain 2 meters apart or even at their own homes we want to start the year off right with activities such as:
•all about me/my name
•letters and numbers
•shapes and colors
•cutting, tracing and coloring
First Day/All About Me
These activities are perfect for the first day or week! Colouring and tracing pages are always handy to have around for those first days. Perfect to have sitting out on desks first thing in the morning or to fill in those extra moments. All about me activities are always fun and help you get to know your students. Whether your students are learning to print their name or just need some practice…. name activities are a must! And we can’t forget about all those feelings that come with returning to the classroom (or distance learning) … especially this year! Get a head start on social-emotional learning with some simple feelings activities.
We can’t forget the academics and that usually begins with the alphabet. Practice tracing and printing letters helps students with letter identification and formation. Some simple sight word activities are also included.
This set also includes a variety of math activities like: numbers to 10, printing numerals, counting sets, ten frames and patterns.
