Some ideas

In the past I've done these. Not sure what I'll do this year. And by the way, I still playing with playdough and I'm 41 years old.
  • Had the kids work on a BB display (like paper T-Shirts or fish_ - whatever my "Welcome Board" is -
  • Coloring sheets
  • Draw a picture of what they did over summer vacation
  • Draw me a picture of your favorite thing to do.
Ooooooo - just had a brainstorm for the playdough idea. How about having the kids "cut out" the letters in their name with the playdough. A few years ago, I purchased a tin of cookie cutter letters and I have my own children use them at home with playdough.

Just thinking... the first week of school we focus on how our names are the same and different. Maybe I can give each child a different color playdough, have them cut out the letters and have them use this as some kind of way to compare/contrast their names. The kids would love that! Might get a little pricey though. I don't know. Just thinking off the cuff.
