We Like School - Let children make up additional verses for the above song about what they like best at school. Ask each child to draw a picture of what they like best. (For younger children, photograph them in their favorite area of the classroom.) Put their pictures together to make a book called "We Like School." Read it each morning to create positive feelings about school.
Business Cards - Children and parents alike will be thrilled with this project. During the first week of school help each child type her name. She can also choose a picture from clip art. The teacher can add his name, the grade level, school, and year. Run off about 10 copies for each child on cardstock and send these home at the end of the week. Children will be thrilled to pass these out to friends and relatives.
