I know that a large portion of the morning will be occupied with collecting & organizing supplies. I already have my read aloud of the first day selected, and a writing activity to go with it that will serve as an informal writing assessment. I don't know my schedule yet, but do know that they will get at least an hour for lunch and recess, and between 2 and 3 specials/push-in classes that day that I will not be responsible for. I guess I'm really just worried about what to do during the math block. What are some typical first day of school activities, particularly for math?
