I hope everyone has a wonderful first day back to school!
The first five things I always did with my students were:
1. Assigned seats with a name tag!
2. Have a simple and fun activity on their desk!
3. Morning Procedures were explained or with my older grades written on a poster on the front board.
4. Begin my welcome with a read aloud.
5. After the read aloud, have a quick stretch break (Sometimes this means going on a school tour).
Good luck teachers!
