Visual Plans for the First and Second Week of School

17 September 2013

For details on the frame, see this post.

This is my second week of school and I feel like I have been there for a month already!  I know many of you went back in GASP August!   The North East seems to all start around the same time, right after Labor Day.  This year was a little weird because of the Jewish holidays, we went back for two days and then had off.  The kids came in for the first time last week.   I was enjoying the summer weather right up until the end.  I LOVE boating and I am really sad the weather turned so cool, so quickly.
Here are my plans from last week (my first week of school) and this week.  Feel free to pin, so that maybe you can use them next year.   Click on the pictures to download.   

First Week of School Plans

If you like my plan book, you can grab it here!

The first week of school, I focused on rules and routines and all about me.  I utilized my Back to School Writing Prompts and Activities Packet and my It's All About Me packet.

 Second Week of School Plans

My coworker made some cute apple themed centers, so I decided to follow her lead and do a little apple theme for the week.  Luckily for me my friends have amazing apple units out! I utilized the following units and I bought some great apple clip art by Krista Walden.  

Packets utilized this week:


Now here is a little thing I always forget to check: my purchases page.  Did you know that you can easily search by updates?!  Lots of my purchases had been updated.   Very Cool!!!

I hope you all had a great first week back.  I am really enjoying my class - all 25 of them! 


  1. Thank you for the shout out! I hope the first few weeks of school go great for you!
