Reading and writing the room is an interesting and fun way for students to practice a variety of standards.
I know a lot of teachers have a Dr. Seuss theme for their classrooms, so I thought I'd make an activity you can do with your students on the first day of school. Simply run off the template. Students write the things they enjoyed doing the most on each stripe of the cat's hat. Add a first day photo for that finishing touch. There's a hat without the 1st day sentence as well, so you can use this activity during March's celebration of Seuss.
These 12 Miss Nelson Is Missing cards are a fun way to review this great back to school story, as well as rules for appropriate grammar. Read the cards together as a whole group. Choose a student to come up and circle letters that should be capitalized and then add end punctuation. This FREEBIE is part of my jumbo Miss Nelson is Missing Literacy & Math Packet in my TpT shop.
Miss Nelson is Missing, is one of my all-time favorite back-to-school books. It's also a perfect book to tuck into your sub folder. The packet includes a variety of writing, language arts and reading activites. Plus some adorable "craftivities" to review even more standards. This packet will be free for an entire year, after which time it will be up-dated & included in my 203-page jumbo Miss Nelson is Missing Literacy & Math packet in my TpT shop.
This packet includes: a class book where your current students write a page of advice for your next year's class; a mouse "craftivity" where students jot one piece of advice underneath their mouse's head (it flips up); plus a bookmark from you and one for your students to make for an in-coming kiddo.
