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!
