I am having so much fun seeing everyone's photos as they are preparing their classrooms for the new school year! It makes me wish that I could get into my room! However, it will be the 15th before I will be able to step foot into my room! Our school year begins on the day after Labor Day each year.
I am anxious to hear about what everyone has planned to do with their students during those first few weeks of school. I thought it would be fun for us to share our back to school crafts/activities! Although I do not have many things available to me from home to share, I was able to come up with a few to share.
Above is a picture of a craft that is similar to one that I have done in the past...but I am thinking of trying this one instead. This apple and the one I usually do involves tearing paper. I really like to work those fine motor skills with these types of activities.
The other project that we do in those first days invlove the first letter of their name. I give each child a large cut out of the first letter in their name. Then, I provide foam sticker shapes. They peel and stick the stickers to cover their letter. It is a great fine motor activity while helping them to learn the first letter of their name!
Again, I will add more to this post soon! So, please LINK UP BELOW and join the party! I can't wait to see what everyone has to share!
TBA is also having an Ultimate Linky Party! Be sure to stop by and see what other Linky Parties are going on in Blogland!
