First Week of School!

I made it! I survived the first week back to school as a {mommy of two}! I'm exhausted and my house is a complete disaster, but it's over! Now, how many weeks are left!?

I wanted to share some of my favorite activities that my class and I completed this week! I always {love} planning for the first week of school. I just love all the fun activities that I get to do with my kids- communitiy building, getting to know you, and some fun little crafts!

On the first day, we started out with my favorite yarn activity. You can read all about that here! Then, we read First Day Jitters and got rid of the jitters with some fabulous Jitter Juice!

Speaking of Jitter Juice- if you teach second grade, you MUST get Babbling Abby's amazing product SUPER IN SECOND! This product has been a complete lifesaver for the first week of school! The Jitter Juice section is the perfect addition for first day fun! I also just {love} the Find-A-Friends!

I couldn't let the first day get by without taking some picture of my little cuties! I made this adorable little frame using my Silhouette Cameo and can't wait to use it at the end of the year too! 

We also talked about our classroom rules and expectations A LOT! This year my school has began utilizing PBIS! So far, I LOVE it! I've always had a positive behavior system implemented in my classroom- not a huge fan of clip charts! So, this is just perfect for me! Students are able to earn tickets throughout the entire school to use in our school store and for monthly grade level incentives! Does anyone else use PBIS in their school? I'd love to know more about how you use it in your classroom! I made these posters to hang in my room to go along with our classroom and school wide rules!

To learn more about each other, we completed this All About Me Pencil Craftivity. Students were able to complete the little booklet and a pencil craftivity all in one! It sure made a cute little display in the hallway!

What are some of your favorite activities to do the first week of school?

Happy Teaching,
