Every year, our first day of school is mid-week.  The first week and a half of school is spent learning classroom routines and rules, working on pencil grip, and learning to write their names.

I make sure to have scissors and pencils for students who have not yet mastered using scissors or holding a pencil.  These can be purchased at Amazon, Target, and sometimes Dollar Tree!

We do lots of name activities to help them recognize and (later) learn to write their names.  More pictures to come…
