This blog is all about the Joys and the journey of teaching in california
Every year on the first day of school, I always take a picture of each student. I use them all year, for presentations, memory books, parent gifts, yearbook, etc. You can use them digitally, which doesn't cost anything, or upload them and have them printed out from a local retailer. I do both. Students love to see their photos and how much they have grown by the end of the year. One of the pictures I take on the first day is of each student holding a first day of school sign to commemorate the beginning of their year. If you have never done this, I recommend trying it out. I think you will be happy you did. To get you started, click here to get a fun collection of signs to use. Simply print the page for your grade level in whichever design you choose!
