Back to School Freebie Countdown: All About Me!

So not to keep beating a dead roach here, but many of you are already aware that I work in a year round school and I'm going back to school on July 9th!!!

There are a few things that I am SERIOUSLY stressed about:

1. Learning the New Common Core Curriculum. 
2. Teaching the New Common Core Curriculum
3. Assessing the New Common Core Curriculum
4. Recording Student Progress with the New Common Core Curriculum 

I could probably think of more things but this all leads up to the fact that we are switching to a new curriculum and that I will be teaching it in about 8 days and I am still pretty clueless. Okay, yes I have studied the math but Speaking and Listening is TOTALLY new for us here. Gargh. 

So to channel this negative stress energy I have decided to do something POSITIVE. Every day until school starts I will be giving away something AMAZING! Well, maybe not amazing, but certainly cute and helpful! :) 

Here is the first freebie

Print them and attach to a brown paper bag and you are ready to go.
You may have seen this idea here, or here. This is my take on an age old idea.

I LOVE having the kiddos open these and share about themselves. For the past two years I have had them bring in just ONE thing and I have had them share it on the second day of school. This year I am having them bring FOUR things and will have them share during morning meeting for the first week of school. 

Enjoy, and be sure to come back again tomorrow for more awesomeness! :)
