First 2 Days of 2nd Grade



Well, I'm back in 2nd grade...and it feels so good!!  I'm not going to lie, I have missed it so. 

This year, we only had 2 days for back to school type of stuff. I wish we would have had at least 3, but I still got some fun stuff in there!

Here are some of the books I read this week...


I'll show you some of the activities I did for these books. 

We started our first day with a SUPER cute book You're Finally Here. 
(this book is SUPER expensive on Amazon right now, but try Amazon Canada!)

I love doing this activity from Linda Kamp's pack - it was so cute!



I found this poster on Pinterest, but there was no source, so I don't know whose idea this was originally, but it's super cute. I just remade it on chart paper and laminated it for future use. 

Then we did the Bucket Filler from Amy Lemons and Erica Boher. (the strips come from Erica)


We also read The Invisible Boy (this book is SO CUTE) and David Goes to School.

This is one of my favorite activities to do for David Goes to School.




We did a few activities from Rooted in Reading for The Invisible Boy, but the only one I took a picture of was our Class Pledge...which is actually different from what is in the packet, but instead we just used it for our "Rules for the Class."


We read Listen, Buddy and did this anchor chart together.  Then we did some fun activities from Angela (freebie in her TPT store). 


Also, within the first week, I like to take their pictures. I do a few different pictures... one with a first week sign, one with just a regular smile, and one with them doing whatever pose -this goes on the wall around our welcome board outside our room.

 (I always do a first week one, instead of a first day one... because, like this year, I didn't take the pictures on the first day. lol)


I take these pictures and I put them in their Memory Books.  I forgot to take pictures of them working on them this week, but I'll be sure to show you how we're storing them for the year next week. 



With only 2 days, we didn't get to do a lot, more will come next week!

You can see what I've also done in my first few days of 1st Grade HERE
