Back To School- First Day Poem

The beginning of the year can is filled with lots of emotions.  Our students experience a very wide range of feelings, and this can be exciting, overwhelming, and often confusing.  This year I want to include some meaningful and powerful activities to those first few days to help students process and reflect on those feelings.

I created a series of sentence prompts that come together to form a First Day of School Poem.  I am hopeful that it will give my students some "down time" on that first day, and offer them the chance to check in with themselves to process how they're getting on.  You can grab this FREEBIE for yourself by clicking [HERE] or on the image below:

  1. Thank you for sharing! Could you please tell me where you got the frame for your poem from? I'd love to use it. Thanks! :)

    1. Hi Theresa! I'm so glad you liked it. I got the border from the very talented Scrappin' Doodles. I couldn't find the specific set on TpT, but you can purchase it from their website: Hope that helps!
