Tomorrow is our first day of school! Reilly is really excited, as am I. I got some new things to decorate the room with, which I will put up after she goes to bed tonight. That way she will awake to something new! I'm going to just do some review this week and really start the new things next week, but, other than that, I have no plan....a little scary, but we'll manage. (Note: I've got books and workbooks and things like that, just no written lesson plan. Myfairladies hasn't written it for me yet!! Tee hee!)

Does anyone have ideas for things I can do to make the first day of school "special"?

Just have fun! The only thing I did to show that it was the first day was to make a cute note on our dry erase board. However, it just felt exciting for them because of all of the new materials and all. Plus, I made SURE that we had at least one project to do to make it feel fun.
Enjoy! I hope it goes really really well!!!

How about making 'first day' bickies (cookies you yanks!) or 'first day' toast. Shape the bickie dough into the words first day or even happy first day if there is enough dough. To make the toast have a couple of small dishes of milk and add food colouring to it. You then paint first day on the bread and toast it. Try not to get it totaly soggy.

Oooo, I may have to try the toast thing! I could also make Mickey Mouse head-shaped waffles (we have a waffle iron) - they'd think that was unique! Also, I have a "make your own gum" kit that I thought I might do. This week is mainly going to be review, really. But I do want to make it fun!

I have been thinking about that first day of school thats coming up quickly for us as well... I think that I may take the girls on a little picnic to a local flower garden and walkways park that we have close by and spend the afternoon walking, taking their portraits and having a snack.

Good luck Lisa I am sure you will do great!

PS
I am still waiting for the cheque for the lesson plans... you send me my million dollars and I will send the lesson plans!
