Time Saver! This worked so well for me last spring~I had to share!

While planning my maternity leave last spring I created a folder for each week that I would be gone and ordered them by date in a square storage box.   I filled the folders with a dated blank lesson plan page, special notes to go home, birthday crowns for birthdays each week, field trip notes, star of the week notes, snack request notes and book order notes, etc.  This worked so well and kept me and my sub organized!  I have decided to begin the year with a pre-dated folder for each week of the upcoming school year.  I will fill them in September with the same things listed above and anything else that I can plan ahead for and place in the folders.
First Day Check List--This is a repeat of my first day checklist on my Welcome To School Page.
First Day Checklist

First Day Checklist

1. Have 2-3 copies of your class roster. One on your desk, one on the wall for emergency drills, and one in your take home bag for reference.

2.Have a name tag for each student to wear that includes
* His/her Complete Name
*Bus number (or walker, car rider)
*School name and phone number
*Your name
(I laminate my students tags hole punch them and string them as necklaces with a note ***(laminated) on the back of each one that tells parents to send the tag back to school every day for the first week until we have established our dismissal routine.) ***Tip--Use Avery Address labels and your printer to quickly print up 20+ copies of the return tag request. Then you can easily peel them off and stick them on the back of your name tags before laminating them! I use these same tags for field trips except I use the shipping labels) E-mail me (below) if you need more info.!

3. Have your first week planned, and ALL materials prepared~~but always over plan! I never get to half of what I had planned the first week of school due to first week changes and interruptions, but I feel better knowing I am ready and over prepared if necessary!

4. Have a copy of your lesson plans on your desk and one in your take home bag in case the other gets lost!

5. Have a signed form from each parent regarding HOW their child is to go home from school. I have parents fill out a special form that tells me how their child is to go to and from school, and how their child is to go home in case of an early release day due to bad weather. I keep the original copy of this with my sub folder in the office, and make an extra copy that stays in my desk until the last day of school.

6. Have 1 sharpened pencil ready for each student on their desk. This saves you the headache of everyone wanting to visit the pencil sharpener first thing on the first day!

7. Have stations prepared as to where you want the children to put their supplies. Decide what you want and don't want to have the kids have at their desks! Ex. "Girls, bring all tissues to the round table." Bring all paint shirts to the yellow basket. Bring all markers to the square table, etc. This keeps you organized while trying to gather student supplies. Have 2-3 volunteers to help you check items for student names, with permanent markers in hand to quickly write names if needed. If parents bring their children, which they almost all do on the first day of Kindergarten~have them double check their child's name on all supplies before leaving and have permanent markers on the tables available for the parents to use. To make a long story short~Have A Plan in mind for all of these new supplies! :o)

8. After all supplies are put away I show the kids where their backpacks and coats will go. Have all individual desks, cubbies, hooks and spaces labeled, ready and waiting for the children and their supplies.

9. Remember--That the first day, weeks and month of kindergarten are ALWAYS the hardest for the kids and us!
Remember~~ your class WILL establish a routine and things will begin to flow. It just takes time!

E-mail me if you have any questions.
