What do I do on the first day of FIRST Grade?

So, let’s get down to it… whether you’ve been teaching 1 year or 20 years, we all ask ourselves the same question leading up to Back to School…

What do I do on the first day of 1st grade?

Are you a teacher who mentally blocks out the beginning of the school year (namely, the very first day of school)? It’s all shades of crazy that you try to forget, right?! If you are like me, the only way to keep yourself sane is by planning out your day… minute-by-minute. It helps to keep you on target with your goals for the first day (getting to know your students, getting them to know each other, and most importantly, teaching the procedures, rules and expectations of your classroom), and keeps the day flowing smoothly. 

So… your room is ready! 

Now what?!



To help make our lives easier, I have put together this easy-to-use pack of detailed, (and more importantly) realistic lesson plans and activities for the first day of first grade. 

The day focuses on getting to know each other, learning procedures, and allows for you to get a snapshot of where your students are academically. And even better… the lesson plans are 100% editable.
