Our first week doesn't start until after Labor Day, but I wanted to join in on the Linky fun.
I use two different resources from the wonderful Amy Lemons. Let's Get Started, which are beginning of the year math activities and My School Rules. My School Rules is fantastic and I love the scenarios she provides that engage the students in problem solving responses to poor behavior choices. I use Whole Brain Teaching, so we go over those concepts quite often the first few days of school.
I also use the Teach Wife's Back to School pack. The teacher hunt, board game and all about me book get us all acquainted with one another. Something new I am planning on trying is Alma Almazan's Scan It, Read It, Find It, Write It sight words packet. While the kiddos are busy trying it out, I'll be doing individual assessments of sight word knowledge.
I am also putting to use the adorable Daily 5 posters created by Leslie, the Groovy Teacher. To round out my reading instruction, I'll be using lessons from Tanny McGregor's book Comprehension Connections. She has a new book out that I am eagerly waiting from Amazon. It should be here today!
