Back to School 5th Grade Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to join in with other amazing 5th grade teachers to offer this Back to School Blog Hop!

I remember my first day of teaching, I was terrified! The kids were as big as I was and well… to be honest it took me longer than it should have to get over being the one ‘in charge’. Don’t forget that this is something that your students go through almost every year on the first day! It helps to have an activity out and waiting for them or a sweet little note on their desk. Here’s a great activity to surprise them with on the first day (and it’s a great freebie to download):

  3. I've now gone to leave you a comment and found an error twice! Well, third time is a charm, right?

    I definitely think it's important to have something out on their desks when they walk in. Great idea!

    I'm so happy to be hopping around to all of these wonderful blogs! Thank you so much for this tremendous opportunity. It's been a blast and I hope to do it again soon!

    Ok, I think I got it right this time!

  4. Thanks for this freebie! I like the idea of letting them write about their summer! First days are scary and nerve wracking for everyone!
