Back To School Linky Party

Jodi at Fun in First is having a Linky Party on Back to School Activities!

I have done a couple different posts with activities that I use to start out the year.

I do a Treasure Box/Bag activity around Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge. Students bring in items that are important to them to share and write about.

I also talked about 2 activities I do when setting up Daily 5. The first is a self-portrait activity and the second is an assignment to bring in a favorite book. I also talked about an "All About Me Writing" that I do for each student. All of these activities make great displays for open house. Ours is in late September.

I know there are more activities that I love to do, but all of my classroom is still packed and I am refusing to go in with a month of vacation left!


  1. Thanks for leaving a comment on my paper bag foldable. I plan to give each student 5 notecards and have them write 5 about 5 of their favorite things in complete sentences so I can see how their writing.
