On the tables:
Name tags placed with contact paper
4 pages: Getting to know your child sheet (return later), checklist of places to put supplies, half-sheet with quick things to know such as allergies and how the child is going home each day and finally the daily schedule.
I had the students put their scissors in the colored caddies at their tables, put the large items such as wipes, tissues, and baggies in boxes at the front of the room. The rest of the supplies were left on the table at their spot.
I also had a large name tag which I had them hold while I took their photo. This will allow me to learn their names before school starts.
The next two days will be assessment days. Each child signed up for 30 minutes to do a 1:1 test.
Bubble Day: The kids were given bubble wands and allowed some time to play with them outside.
Teddy Bear Day: Each child brought a teddy bear to school to use during math. They measured how tall their bears are using cubes, compared bears on a balance scale, and compared bears in many other ways.
Ladybug Day: See plants
We read this story and then talked about different ways to make color words more exciting by giving them new names. The kids wrote their new color names on a crayon and colored it to match. They loved this! Some of the color names were: Statue of Liberty green, emerald green, lava red, diamond blue, dolphin gray, apple red, Toothless black, and sunset pink.
