Description

The first week of school can be overwhelming! There is so much to plan and do. Let me take the worry and stress out of planning the first days of school for you! This entire week of plans has everything you need to kick off a successful year with your students. These daily lesson plans include 5 full days of lessons, morning meetings, team-building activities, STEM projects, read-alouds, schedules for each day, and so much more. This resource is jam-packed with every single detail you need to have an engaging first week of school.

 

Every day includes a schedule with a time breakdown for each lesson and activity. Also, you will find that each day has a theme, and follows a consistent schedule. Included with each daily plan is also an editable PowerPoint. This is a PowerPoint you can project for students to see and follow along with the daily lessons and activities.

 

I have also included educational, fun and engaging math review games for each day. Many of the games included are top-selling products on Teachers Pay Teachers! Some of the games are escape rooms, and others are played in a game show format. For almost every game and activity there is a digital option. So, this product is also a wonderful choice for virtual learners. The games are all provided in PowerPoint with some Google Slides options. The printable pages have a digital option in Google Slides.

 

Like mentioned above, some of my best-selling escape games and game show review games are also included in this product! You will find links to those products below.

 

Below, you will also find a very quick breakdown of each day. I include detailed instructions in the product for each lesson and activity. Every detail and minute of your day is planned in these lessons!
