Use this goodie bag tag to create fun little welcome back to school goodie bags for your students to give out on the first day of school. Include the items from the poem in the goodie bag, tie with a ribbon and attach this card {front & back}.

First Week Of School Activities... I like the idea of classmates interviewing each other. I don't think I would do this on the FIRST day... but maybe later in the week.
