Congrats on moving to first! I decorate mostly with blue, but that's just my personal preference. Anything calming is good. We do a first day page to save and repeat at the end of year. It includes a self portrait, they write their name, and a few favorites. We usually do a first craft to hang in the hall plus some review of kindergarten skills. We also learn our new rules and procedures.

Welcome to first! Wow! We still have 5 weeks to go! I do exactly as Sara described. We also have to do individual DIBELS testing in the first week. I give the kids a time-consuming cut and paste each day (cut the alphabet and glue them in order, sort pics by beginning sound, match upper/lowercase letters, etc. ) so I can test them one at a time.

All of the above plus tour building and procedures, procedures, procedures. I also take their first day picture for portfolio and bulletin board.

Welcome to first!! I do much of what has been stated. I also make sure I take a photo of each child on the first day for our end of the year book. In the first couple of weeks we spend lots of time on procedures. We also write several class books (based on Brown Bear Brown Bear; Mary Wore Her Red Dress; etc) so that students can read them during centers. We practice lots of poems and songs. Much of our phonics work is tied to student names and we work to sort names in many ways. Have fun!!!!
