I like to start the year with a positive note. Last year I had this note on their desk with a bag of goodies. The pencil and eraser were on their desks ready for use. I used cute goodie bags tied with a twist tie. The kids put the bag in their backpacks and began using their pencil and eraser.
Here is a smaller version of what I used. If you want the version with only one on a page leave a comment and I will email it to you.
This year I was inspired by Pinterest. Here is what I have now.
I will have the pencil and eraser sitting on their desks. I like it that way because they can immediately start on their work while I get things in order. The first day is always chaotic, as you know.
