Well, it's here! The day I've been waiting for all summer! The first day of school! My first day as a 1st grade teacher! It was fun! Busy but fun! I even ate lunch on the run.
So the highlight definitely was Magic playdoh! I have done magic playdoh for years in Kindergarten. I wasn't going to do it this year but really wanted to after meeting my kids at open house. We saved it till the end of the day. The kids LOVED it! Here is the poem I attached to the baggie. I found this poem off another blog but couldn't get it to print so I typed it up again. Here it is if you want to use it. magic playdoh poem
Fun, fun, fun!!
We also read the book First Day Jitters by Julie Danneburg
Then we completed our first class book. We made Faces and Feelings on the 1st day of 1st grade. I was impressed with their illustrations. So much different than the first day of Kindergarten!! That's for sure! Here is the link to the book pages. Faces and Feelings on the 1st day of 1st grade!
