Freebie Frenzy for Back to School

Back to school is just around the corner.  I am always excited and anxious to get my classroom set up and implement new ideas that I have seen on Pinterest.  If you are like me, you like to mix things up and try new things.  I get bored doing the same thing year after year.

Back to School Freebies and Ideas

Summer will be over before we know it.  I am going through my files and searching Pinterest for ideas for back school ideas.  I am sharing with you some of my favorite Back to School freebies for the beginning of the school year.

Find a Friend is a great icebreaker for the first day of school.  It gets your students out of their seats and learning about their new classmates.  You can get your FREE copy of Find a Friend by clicking on the picture.

A great and easy way to praise your students is with these positive notes.  I like to put them on my students' desks while they are out of the room.  They get excited to see the note and it lets them know their teacher appreciates them and is proud of them!

I use Go Noodle for brain breaks and when it is too hot to go outside for P.E.  I found these FREE Go Noodle Coupons from Erica Bohrer.  They are a great way to reinforce positive behavior and the best part is that it cost you any money!  Click on the picture to get your free copy.
I give my students this review booklet that I made that reviews many first grade skills.  I have them complete a page a day while I take attendance and lunch count.  It is a great way to informally assess my students.  You can purchase this from my TPT store.
