Hi, I'm Katy Hill. I'm a fourth grade middle school teacher, and these are some first day of school activities for second grade. What you have to remember for second grade is that this is an age where kids like to talk about themselves, they like to tell you everything about their lives. So, one good way to have them do that on the first day of school is to set out some Play-Doh, and I have different colors, I have different little tools for them to play with, however you want to set that up. But then, they kind of have the freedom to do what they want to with it. They can, if you just kind of give them the loose instruction to make something that represents themselves, they could make anything from an animal to a replica of themselves, one of their pets, one of their family members, maybe a hobby that they like to do, and then this allows them to use that as a tool to explain about themselves and what they like to do. I'm Katy Hill, and these have been some first day of school activities for second grade.
