Dear Teachers,

Welcome back!

I hope you enjoyed a relaxing summer!

If you're like me, your summer vacation probably passed by in the blink of an eye. The start of another school year is just around the corner—and is always an exciting and busy time—organizing your classroom, developing lesson plans, getting acquainted with a new group of students. Another year of learning ahead!

Here are quick word-making activities for students to do during the first few days of school— enjoy!
