I created this back to school lesson plan theme with the first week of school in mind. It’s a lesson on getting to know your peers and school week. It will help the children understand the rules that are implied both in the school room and outdoors. Helping children to get to know their fellow peers as well as tell others about their interests.
GROUP TIME ACTIVITIES
Have the children sit in a circle. Give a ball of yarn to one child. Have the child hold the end of the string and roll the ball to another child. Have that child hold the yarn and pass it to a third. The third child then rolls it back to the original starting child. Have the children guess what shape it is. I use this for an opening activity to introduce my shape theme.
