I wanted to share a couple of things with you. First things first... I made several writing activities that can be used for the first week of school. Here are a few sample images (There are more in the actual download):
Next up, I wanted to share a packet that I have for my students/parents at Meet the Teacher Night. This is not meant for you to use word for word because it's so campus/grade level/teacher specific. BUT, it may give you an idea on how you can present important information to your class.
Last, but certainly not least, I am a new author of the 2nd grade blog, "Me and My Gang!" I'm super excited about it, and you should definitely check it out!
