First, I take a photo of each child when they come in for pre-testing. I hang up some fabric and use it as a background for the photos . Then, when I attach their photos to the inside of their cubbies, they all coordinate with the bulletin board above it and the red checkered theme I have in my room.
|We will write about our favorite sandwiches on a sandwich|
template and pin them on the plates.
|Their photos, with the checkered background ,|
will replace the old photos inside the cubbies.
I print the photos in all different sizes to use in different ways.
One way is to attach a 2" X 3" photo to card stock, laminate it, and add a sticky Velcro dot to the back.
Then, we use them to graph all kinds of things on a huge graph I made that has Velcro in each square.

Next, I printed up our 1st Day certificates:
|This year, I had to change my master to "first day of TK".|

We took our "First Day In TK" photos! I am hanging the frame on the bulletin board and placing the individual photos all around it for Back-To-School-Night!
That's all for now. See you all tomorrow for more "Beginning of the Year" ideas.
