For the first day's homework, all of the 2nd grade team set out these bags with the details about
what they need to bring for the first day of school (waterbottle, snack) and the bag is for the students to bring three things that tell about themselves that will fit in the bag. I hope students are thinking hard on that today!
I also set out a wish list with several items that parents could bring for the classroom if they are able to. I will set this out again on Meet the Teacher Night (on Tuesday) along with some fall conference and guest reader sign up pages.
By request I will post some finished product pictures of my classroom with some things I set out for Back to School night for any teachers looking for ideas for next year.
I'm off to school now to go organize all my the classroom supplies! I'm very excited for our first day of school tomorrow! My next post will be about some changes I'll be doing to my Daily 5 program to cut down on some of the paperwork. Go green!
