The First Thing I Do...

134 Days of school have quickly come and gone! So, I have a quick  Freebie--My kids are at school, I had an all day meeting that ended early (woo-hoo!) and I can actually sit down for a few minutes and blog.  I first saw this on Pinterest--but I do not have the original pin--If it was your idea thanks! During a meeting with Team Leaders and Administrators, my AP and I got to talking about headings.  We both lived in NY as children and started teaching in NY as well. We always had to have a heading on our paper. ALWAYS!!
For First grade--we are just glad they can write their name so, that's when I remembered this poster--(This is my version to match my chevron alphabet) . Our goal is to have first graders write their name and the date. But this is definitely a good place to start!! When I begin a lesson, or an activity, all I now have to say is "The first thing I do is always the same,..."  And my class chorally responds "I take out my pencil and write my name!" It's a great reminder and it really helps them to remember to put their name on their papers.
Happy Thursday everyone!!!
