Have y’all watched Hope and Amy’s Engagement Made Easy LIVE series on Facebook? Each week they (along with a guest) share different activities to get your students excited and engaged during those first few weeks of school. It has been such an amazing series! This past week, we shared our favorite back to school books along with some activities to use with them.
One of my favorite books is, “The Recess Queen” by Alexis O’Neill. I have used this book for years during the first few weeks of school and I think I love it more every year! This book is great to use when discussing playground expectations, bullying, friends, and how to treat others. It is also great for vocabulary!
If you are looking for a few activities to use with this book during those first few days/weeks of school, head over to my Smitten With First Facebook page to see the live video of how I use it year after year!
You can find all the activities above HERE.
