Clip to ScrapBook #5

I always put a tiny tub of the Dollar Tree generic playdoh (8/$1) on each kid's desk on the first day. Everyone knows exactly what to do with it and it helps the nervous nellies focus on something. It also gives you time to read notes from parents, figure out lunches and buses, and soothe the poor kiddo having a missing mommy meltdown.

Make sure you prepare a clipboard in the morning with how everyone is getting home. Don't wait til later. Dismissal time can be quite chaotic those first few days. Someone mentioned in another thread... don't trust the kids about where they go at dismissal. They have been known to get it wrong!

You are going to love first grade! The kids are so sweet and want to please you more than anything!
