    First Day of School

    The first day I read The Kissing Hand and we all traced our hand, decorated it and then glued a hershey kiss in the middle to take home to our mothers. They loved it! We also did some journal writing with pictures, some easy math centers with puzzles and introduction of how to use the manipulatives (each table had a tub and every 10 or 15 minutes we'd switch tables). First graders LOVE puzzles. We had a small snack and decorated name plates.Also the first day we took a tour of the school which was fun, helped them orient themselves (our school was huge) and also good practice for walking in a line.
