The first day of school can be very scary for students, especially students that are going to preschool or kindergarten for the very first time. I mean, man, as a teacher, I even get nervous and I have been teaching for years. I always found giving kids this special little gift, the Back to School Confetti, to open the night before the first day of school helps to ease their minds and hearts for the anticipation of the BIG first day can make a world of a difference. Every single year, I get parents emailing, calling, or telling me in person how this simple little gift made the world of a difference and to me, that makes it all worth it.

1. Choose which grade you would like and print off a class set of copies, front and back. This freebie is editable so you can either type in your name at the bottom of the poem OR you can sign each individual page. To edit, you will need to download all KG fonts here.
2. You will need to get a class set of plastic baggies. Fill each baggie with confetti or sequins and set aside.
3. To put together you will want to fold the page so that you have only this box showing.
4. Place confetti bag inside the paper and tape shut.
I always gave my students their Back to School Confetti the night of meet the teacher night. I would make a BIG deal about it and reiterate that they must not open until the night before their first day of school.
