These products are designed to help both teachers and students have a great experience on the first day back.Ideas for Welcome Back to School Activities
Students like to feel recognized as individuals when going into a new school year. One of the best ways to do that is by starting off with a get-to-know-you activity, like a welcome back to school poster that students can fill out to describe who they are. Teachers can have students fill out signs that list their goals for the year and use them to decorate the classroom. If posters aren’t your favorite idea, we have tons of other welcome back to school projects for older kids. Instead of a poster, students can create books, paper bags or 3-D crafts about themselves. You can get a variety of 3-D options and let students pick their own. You can learn a lot about a new student based on whether they pick a cube, hot air balloon, apple or rocket ship.
For younger students, a fun surprise like a welcome back to school sticker, bracelet or pencil can help ease any trepidation they might be feeling. A cute welcome back to school kit is another fun option for making the first day in a new classroom feel welcoming and safe. Put together fun and welcoming goodie bags with special Welcome to School paper bags, colorful pencils, cute stickers and whatever else you think will help set the right tone for your class. Check out all of our welcome back products in this collection to find inspired ideas for teachers.
