Back To School ~ Interactive Style!

I know....I know.... we just got out for summer!  But I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking a *little* about the beginning of next year?!

Don't get me wrong....I'm still in my pajamas (it's 1:00 in the afternoon!) and lounging around is pretty normal these days, but I still think about school sometimes!

I just whipped up this little FUN interactive back to school packet....perfect for the first week of school!

I really plan on using interactive journals in multiple subjects and activities this why not start the first week?!

I know the first week we are still sorting supplies so you may not have student journals ready, so you can easily make this with a student journal or simply make a construction paper foldable!  (Then they can take them home!)

I like to print my pages on bright colored paper.... but you can just as easily use white paper and the students can make it their own!

After choosing which route to go (journal or construction paper)....  it's simple from then on!

Here are both examples of the cover that is included!  

Students can easily color the cover to make it their own!

(Yes...Little M decided to grab a green crayon and attempt to make this his own!)

(I chose black construction paper because it made the colored paper pop out...and students could write in a white crayon!  If you would rather have them write with a pencil, of course choose a different color!

While this page has first graders in mind, I did include templates for Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, AND 3rd grade!

Don't want to use colored paper.... no problem!

Just print on white and it's just as FUN!

Your students are sure to have fun sharing about themselves, while getting to know their new classmates!

You can click on the picture below to check out the packet!!  (on sale for a limited time!)

AND.... the first THREE people to comment will get the packet for FREE!

  1. Very cute! This looks like something the kids could do by themselves while I'm assessing. :)

  2. I love this! I think it is a great "get to know you" activity as well as a good activity to see how much students can read and write! -- We missed you at academy for sure! Good luck and thanks for all you did for us!

  3. Wow! Awesome! I'd love to use this with my class!

  4. Whaaa! just missed being the third. Love this idea. It would be a great beginning in their yearly writing portfolio. And a great way yo show how to use their future interactive journals...and a way for me to see how nicely they can work...independently...or not??
    Anyway, I will go and check this out and put it on my future wish list!
    Love your ideas!!
