First Day of Kindergarten







The first day of school is almost here, and it is very important to have everything ready to go (ESPECIALLY IN KINDERGARTEN) so that your day goes smoothly. For some reason, I always seem to over plan my first day and NEVER get to everything that I had anticipated. Here are a few first day of school activity ideas that I incorporate into my classroom. Enjoy!




















The Days Following the First Day

As much as I would like to squeeze everything into the first day of school, I am a realist and it is not happening! Here are a few of the activities that I use after the first day of school. I usually stretch these activities out during the first few weeks.



This is a lot like my school rules pocket chart, but it focuses on bathroom behavior. Oh my....kinders really need multiple lessons on bathroom behavior. We will use this whole group as a daily reminder.



We use this question of the day pocket chart to get to know each other. The first question we use helps us talk about lunch routines. The kiddos place their name beneath lunch from home or school lunch. There are several questions that go with this set. I change the question each morning.


Back to School Basics
This set of activities are perfect for those first few weeks. Your kiddos will practice cutting, number formation, letter formation, color words, and more.

  6. Sounds wonderful!! I’ll have to try this on weight watchers :). I love spaghetti squash so I usually poke a hole in it and cook it in the microwave about ten minutes. That gets it half way done. Then I finish by roasting it cut side down in the oven because it has better flavor!!
