New Student Today

How hard for a little firstie to move at this time of year!  It's also hard on the teacher!  My class loves having a new student!  One of the things that helped me out is having a move in kit.

I store everything in a book box.  In the past I've also used a ziploc bag in the past.
  • Take Home Folder - Student and Parent Handbook, Information Sheets for Parents to fill out
  • Math Workbook
  • Handwriting Workbook (not pictured - I ran out)
  • Calendar Folder and D.O.L.  (not pictured - she was using it)
  • Spelling Dictionary
  • Writing Composition Notebook
  • Phonics Phone
  • Desk Plates
  • Locker Tags
  • Name tags for behavior board, Star Student board, Math Stations, Job Board, Book Box
  • Sharpened pencil
Keep this idea tucked away for next year when you're putting all the materials out at the beginning of the year!!


  1. Good for you! Ready for a new student, even this late in the year. What a great teacher you are!
