The new school year will be upon us shortly. We will be meeting the new kindergarteners as well as their grownups. What can we do now to prep for the upcoming kindergarten school year?

Much Needed Paperwork

Paperwork, paperwork, paperwork!!! There is always a lot of forms to send home with your new students during the first week of the new school year. Some forms are required by the district or school. But some are specific for your students to welcome them to your classroom. Do you already have a packet prepped for your new kindergarteners. No? Well, I have made it easy!! Check out this TikTok video and download your Back to School Editable Kit for Meet the Teacher Open House Forms Letters. Easy!!

Supplies

Did you get your supply list updated? What do you need for this year? Are you the type to wait until the last minute to review your supplies and purchase what you need right before school starts? Or do you have your list updated from last year and know exactly what you need for this upcoming year? Well, whichever category you fall into, here is a **FREEBIE** Supply Inventory List help make this chore a little less daunting.

Year Long Activities

Do you have easily downloadable and printable activities for your little learners for all seasons? Here are some bundles that are a must-have for the kindergarten classroom for individual, whole group or stations. Not only are they convenient for you as the teacher, but they are fun and meaningful to your academic progress for your students. Having these before the year starts makes for easier lesson planning and daily prep time.

Substitute Teacher Activities

We all know that emergencies, as well as, scheduled days off occur throughout the school year. If you prepare for this ahead of time- you, your substitute and your students will have a much easier time during your absence. What do you do to prepare?
