Here is a photo of the chart in my classroom. The children already have said, Oh, I never want to be "singin the blues"!!
We also did two fun first day of school activity. One was a "Find a Friend"Activity. After much modeling, the children understand what to do and were going around the room asking their classmates the questions. I loved it!! Here is a link to my store for this activity:
We also did a bit of writing so I could see what they could do in terms of phonics, spelling, capital letters and full stops. I found this great writing activity. I apologize as I am not sure where it came from - I think LessonPlan Diva, but if anyone knows, please let me know so I can give credit to the correct person.
I have also discovered Dropbox. If you don't have this app, this is a must have!! All your storage in one place! No more "Where is my USB key?" Check it out at this link:
