I know lots of us do work in the summer, but you still might have an official first week back to school or do a back to school theme. Do you have any fun activities, worksheets, games or traditions that you do with your children? I am always looking for good ideas and the traditional back to school resource books are too geared toward public schools.
If you have anything to share I would love to read about it. Here's a few things we are doing.....
Wear Back to school tshirts with this saying...
Let's stand up and cheer
2nd grade's finally here.
1, 2, 3, hip, hip, hooray!
Oh, how I love the 1st day!
We always have a special school theme dessert that afternoon/evening...
This year we're making chalkboards with mini ice cream sandwiches and white icing.
We will have a "school bingo" match
We will write about the first day
We measure height and weight and record on a special page for portfolios
We read school themed books
The kids get to pick one wrapped present at the end of each day (the first week) if they
have a great day. The gifts are educational/academic in some way.
We take lots of pictures for our school yearbook/scrapbook
We do a few school theme crafts (chalkboard windsock, apple scratch art, etc
We play more games (educational) the first week of school too.
Please share your ideas too!
