One of the biggest transitions in our school day happens right when they enter the classroom. That time when they all stagger into the room. Some are putting away coats, others are asking for the bathroom, a few have weepy eyes missing mommies, and a few others are wondering why I won't just put their things away for them! I decided to make a poster to hang up in the front of the room. I am going to refer to it every day and point to each part so they remember the steps they need to take to get ready to start our school day.
I know some of your routines may be different, but I will still share it in case you want one to refer to our use as a model. The clip art is from DJ Inkers and Scrappin Doodles. Enjoy!
