Welcome Back to School! | firstgradefantasies

Tuesday, January 5, 2016

Wow!  The last few weeks have been soooo busy!  I have a class of 15 wonderful kids!  Things are going really well as we are working on routines and the basics of first grade.  I have forgotten how exhausting it is to keep up with all those bundles of energy and excitement.
Some things I am glad I spent time and money doing before school started:
     G.O. (Getting Organized) Books.  My parents LOVE these books!  I LOVE that everything is right there in one binder!
     Behavior clip chart from New Management, Inc.  The kids are responding very well to being able to move clips UP the chart, and coloring in the square on their behavior chart in the G.O. book at the end of the day is extremely motivating!
     ANYTHING purchased from TeachersPayTeachers that had to do with back to school.  This is the first year in a long time I felt totally prepared for those little bodies to come through the door.  I had plenty of fun, educational activities to keep us busy and happy!

your chance to win some wonderful graphics from two sites that have really cute stuff.   And if you visit their sites, you'll find some cool freebies!  Good luck!
