Back to School Activities: (Beginning of the Year Mini Unit): 3D Balloon Craft: 13 pages: This craft will make your classroom colorful by hanging this on your ceiling. This mini packet will help you get to know a little about your little ones while keeping them occupied on the first day/s of school. Fun to do, easy to assemble and colorful when done! ;) This can also fit to your back to school unit.
I use these Whole Brain Teaching attention getters on a daily basis with my ELL students. These attention getters are a great way to improve your classroom management. I usually pick one or two to teach the class at the beginning of the year. Then every month or every few weeks, I introduce a new attention getter, which my students can't wait for!!
**Updated 7/7/15 - I put the 22 attention getters into 3 different table formats. You can choose which one (visually) works best for you.**I use these Whole Brain Teaching attention getters on a daily basis with my ELL students.

This social contract by @kindergartenkindergarten is an awesome idea! Definitely save this one for the beginning of the year. Check out her Instagram for some awesome kindergarten ideas. #earlycorelearning
This is a great tool to use a teacher to model the beginning, middle, and end for the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I really liked this idea because I plan to teach Kindergarten or 1st grade and this is one of my favorite children's picture books.
