First Day Survival Kit


It's fun to give something to your students for "Surviving" their first day of school.  We have a cute poem that we use at our grade level but because of allergies in my classroom, I had to tweak it a little. Here is what I do (in case you'd like to steal it).  
You will need, band aids, Smarties, erasers, stickers, baggies and Starbursts.

I then wrote the following poem:

Today was your first day of first grade.
I knew you'd make it through.
We had a lot of fun today
and tomorrow we'll have fun too.
There are many things I have planned this year.
I know you'll learn a lot.
And so I've made this little kit
to remind you of what you've got...

*An Eraser: The best way to learn is from mistakes, and we'll make a lot together.
*A Sticker: This class will stick together and cheer each other on.
*A Band aid: You have a teacher who cares about you and will take care of you while you're at school.
*Smarties: You are a smart person today and tomorrow you'll be even smarter!
*A Starburst: You are a STAR!
Let's have a great year!
~Mrs. Doran

Then I put all the items in little baggies and hand them out at the end of the first day of school 
(that is if I survive it...).

    People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it. These guys were the last generation to practice basic things-for a living-that we call survival skills now.

    Survival Things Our Great Grandfathers Did Or Built Around The House.

    Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets...

    So I really can't think of anyone more qualified in sharing real-life survival lessons than people who lived through times like these.
