It is that time of year again, time to go back to school! Your mind is swimming with all of the details... You begin to make preparations that will help the first days and the entire year go smoothly. How about a little help?
The First Days is a collection of tips and ideas from first grade teacher Terri Creamer, third grade teacher Susan Altemus, and sixth grade teacher Carol Hornat at the William F. Halley Elementary School in Fairfax County, Virginia.
These pages are not geared for any specific grade level. Please pick and choose what works for you. Feel free to copy and use the sample
activities, and to copy these pages to share with others. The First Days was maintained by former Teachers Network web mentor
Kristi Thomas, a teacher at William F. Halley Elementary School.
