Today I am linking up with Molly from Psyced to be in Second and her linky about trying so many new things- the first day of school! I know I have been getting ready for the First Day- I have been updating all my goodies so I am ready for the big day!
2) They apply for a class job and I go over our Classroom Checkbook system (this behavior management bundle can be found in here)
4) We go over class rules as a community- creating a classroom norm of what we all think it means to be Safe, Respectful and Responsible.
This year will be fun because it is my first year at this new school. I am excited to meet all my students and colleagues. Since I can’t go into my new classroom until AUGUST 10th (yikes!) I have been refining these first week of school documents so I am ready. They are on my TpT store so check them out!

I love your owl theme for your classroom! Thanks for stopping by my blog-I am now following you too!
Aww, one comment off! That's okay though… just wanted to let you know I love all your blogs and am an avid follower =) I love the ME BAG idea too!
I love all of your ideas! I wish I was in your class!

I do "me bags" and tell the students not to label the outside with their name… then, I open the bags and they have to guess who it belongs to! It helps learn names to hear guessing, and we do a few at a time all through the day so it doesn't become too long. My second graders loved it last year! 🙂
I would love to see how you make your classroom tour so fun! 🙂

You're so lucky if you get the opportunity to loop!!! I will not be looping with my 3rd graders, but I will be keeping 5 of them next year. I wish I could've looped though!
I nominated you for the “Liebster Blog” award which means “favorite” or “dearest” in German. Come visit me to pick up your award! 🙂

You really have some great ideas! Love how you have the students apply for their own job. Do you have them reapply every other week?

I have them apply in the beginning of the year for jobs that they wish to hold over the course of the year. I reference them when I select new jobs every 2-3 weeks. They can apply for more than one job, they order them for me.
