Fun with Firsties {Made-Over!}


Fun with Firsties is probably one my favorite resource packs.   It helped me prepare for my first week of school with my first graders and ease the kiddos into all-day schooling.  

Well, it got a little makeover and now looks like this...


It has TEN activities that are perfect for helping your kiddos transition into the new school year!  



My *favorite* back to school activity is defnitely making Jitter Juice to "scare" off the back-to-school jitters!  So fun and the kids loooooove it!  The poem and activities are included.  




If you already own this resource, go back and download the updated version for FREE!  Click HERE to check it out!

Have a great day!

This is one of my favorite back to school packs. Jitter juice is often talked about when we talk about our favorite memories of first grade at the end of the year. Can't wait to see the updates!

Will the 2nd grade pack get a make over?

Abby, I love the remodel! It's a rainy morning for me so I'm thinking about back-to-school (yikes!) and this is just what I'm looking for!

Thanks for sharing!

Also wondering if the other packets will get an upgrade. I downloaded the big kid packet. I cannot wait to make jitter juice with my third graders. Our first reading selection for CA Treasures is First Day Jitters! Perfect.

hi abby! i already have your fun with firsties pack (LOVE it!) next year i will be teaching a k/1 combo and i love that i can easily incorporate a lot of this pack for k and 1. yay for something being easy! i really like the survey where the student colors in the image to show their emotions about starting 1st grade. would you be willing to edit that and make a kindergarten one for those of us having to teach a k/1 combo? i could easily edit it myself with some boo-boo tape, but it just wouldn't look as nice and i don't wouldn't want anyone (er, parents) to feel slighted.
