Back to school read alouds are a great way for your new students to get to know you and feel comfortable in a low-stress environment.  Everyone loves to be entertained.  Even better when you can find matching educational activities that you would be covering anyway to strategically place in your lesson plans!

Choosing the right books and activities for your students really can make a difference in whether they will want to return after their first day of school.

Some good book choices are posted below, along with some other fabulous return to the classroom activities – all provided by some of my fellow blogging buddies just for you!

Perfect for a first day or first week activity, it allows students to reflect on what they hope to do or accomplish this year, but in an informal way.

Make sure to have students date their paper – and then save them in a safe place where you will remember to grab them again the last couple weeks of school.

Students can get their papers back and see how they actually did.

They just night be amazed at how many items they unconsciously checked off their sheet!

Grab your handout below.
