Suggestions from Members for Preschool and Kindergarten Reading and Literacy Activities
I would suggest the morning message, it gets the children ready for what's happening during the day, and its a great way to develop reading and writing skills.
We make a Classmate book designed like the Brown Bear book. We use our kid's names instead of the animals and include a picture of each kid. They love it and we take turns taking it home for the night the first few weeks of school so that families can get to know the kids in our class.
I do the Kissing Hand the first day of school. I paint the students' hands white, post on black paper, and put a red heart in the middle. Then I paste a poem about the first day of school underneath. As a parent, I like to send something home right away!
