Name Tag Glyphs for Your First Day

Oh hiiiiiiiiiii!  Just popping in...after a very long share a glyph I put together and started using on the first day of school last year.  **It's finally up on Teachers Pay Teachers for you to purchase.**

We started school this past Wednesday, so it has just been crazy busy.  Here I sit trying to grade some new district Common Core assessments that are actually quite fantastic.

available on Teachers Pay Teachers

What I love about this is, while they are coloring (and finishing breakfast) and I'm attempting to take attendance for the first day, I can easily get to know some quick things about my new students!  It's a quick conversation starter between myself and individual students too!  Once they are all done, I like to have them share with each other if let's say...your district's attendance website is down and you are in a mild panic because the first day is starting to fall apart.  Gah!!  Yep!  True story.

I have to show you my first teacher gift of the year too!  A student handed this to me while I was high-fiving and fist bumping my class at the door this morning.  Don't you just love that it is in a water bottle?!  Talk about putting a smile on my face so early in the year.  :-)

Have you had your first day yet?  How did it go?  Let me know what you think of the glyph.
