first day schedule

Clip to ScrapBook #1

This is my third year to teach 2nd grade and I love it! I'm typing out my first week's schedule and had a couple of questions.
First of all, how soon into the first day do you do your read aloud? After looking at my schedule I realized it was well into the morning/ But I wanted to get some procedure things done first.

Also, we have activity (my conference period) at 8:15 I hate to greet them then leave them but I also have duty that day and so it will be only break time. soooo.. I'm just not sure what to do

My Day

I have always used a read aloud at the end of the day after the students pack up to go home. This allows them to see that packing up to go home is not the last thing we do during the day and it makes packing up more smooth for me. It also lets them know the rest of the day (even though it is normally like 15-20 minutes) is for enjoyment. That's what works for me.

Another college has her read aloud after the kids come in from recess since they are normally all crazy anyways.

Hope that helped!

I read my book in the afternoon 1st day jitters with a writing activity and snack. Last year I made friendship salad, but this year I'll save that one for day 2 and I or the kiddos will make jitter fritters. Then continued with procedures.

I usually do my first read aloud about mid-morning. I find that the children want to put their supplies away and check out the room before we sit and read.
Take your conference period. I know it is hard to greet them and leave them but you need your time. I was in the same situation last year on the first day of school. My class had a special at 8:15, but the children were excited about seeing the phy. ed. teacher so it eased my mind.

AliceJ - How do you make jitter fritters?

I do more than one a day

I will do my first read aloud after everyone has come in and we have had a tour and put our things away. I usually do a read aloud during calendar time, after specials, after lunch( to tie into writing) and sometimes at the end of the day for fun.
I love to do read aloud, so I tend to do it more than other people.

Read Aloud

I do my read aloud in between specials and lunch since we have 20 minutes in between. I read after they fill out their planners and it is a great motivator to get them to move quickly so that we can read our book. If there is extra time at the end of the day I also read then. I often use our read aloud a a time filler if we finish something early or have extra time.

chapter book?

By read aloud do you mean a chapter book? If so, the last couple of years I have always done it after recess as a nice quiet time before math.

Add me to the list of just dying to know... I'm doing the read aloud so an activity to go with it would be great. Does this have to do with Jell-O? Just a guess.

Jitter Fritters

I am not the one who mentioned the "jitter fritters" activity, but I found it some where and it sounds like a lot of fun (make sure that you don't have any students with food allergies). Here is what I found:
To go along with the book "First Day Jitters" make some tasty "jitter fritters." Like the main character, Sarah, many people have mixed feelings about the first day of school, so the ingredients for the jitter fritters represent some of the possible first day feelings or experiences.
Ingredients:
(makes one serving)
1/4 cup raisin bran (for the nervous jiggles and lumps children feel inside)
3 teaspoons peanut butter (for new friends to stick with)
1 teaspoon powdered sugar (for fun things sprinkled throughout the classroom)
1 teaspoon light corn syrup (for the teacher's reassuring smile)
3 teaspoons powdered milk (for new ways to learn and grow)

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Shape the mix into a patty, drop it into a bag of powdered sugar and gently shake the bag to coat the patty with sugar. Enjoy!
