I know that many of you are heading back to school for a brand new year. When we went back in January I posted some plans for the first three days that I used. I didn't stick to them entirely but if you want to have a look here they are in one place:
If you download them (not just open them) you should be able to find links to a few freebies on each plan.
One extra thing that I did do during the first week was go over the bathroom procedure. I don't know about you, but at my school each block of 2 classrooms has one boy and one girl bathroom. Each with only one toilet. Plus an extra 8 classrooms in portables nearby that don't have their own bathroom. That equals a lot of kids using only a small number of bathrooms and a stinky mess (ewww).
I shared this pack with the rest of my year level so that all our kids would know how to responsibly use the bathroom. I've added a few things to it and uploaded it to TpT so if you also have bathroom problems at your school you might want to check it out. As always it is 20% off for the first few days.
