Since the first day and first few weeks of school can be a complete BLUR, this FREE first day of school introduction printable will give some focus to your first day back in the classroom! Since students are often not ready to speak in front of their classmates, it's easier for them to write about themselves. The completed worksheets make an amazing visual display for a bulletin board and are a great way for students to find similarities with their classmates. I like to keep them up for the first few weeks of school so that everyone has an opportunity to take a look!
