Favorite Back to School Activities - Linky

It's that time of summer again! So many of us are gearing up for the new school year - we're excited to meet our new kiddos and families and we're thinking about what new ideas we're going to try this year!

To kick-off the new year, I thought I'd start a Linky Party to highlight some of our favorite back to school activities! I'm hoping this becomes a great resource for planning during those last precious weeks of summer.  And for those of you who are already back to school - you can still use many of these ideas for community building, I'm sure!

Your blog post:

1. A linked Freebie activity for the first weeks of school
2. Just an explanation of the activity idea (I know some activities are wonderful and there aren't papers to go with them.)

For YOU, I have two little activities. :)

We always do a bit of graphing during the first couple days of school. I always do some kind of getting to know you graph & "How We Get Home" Graph. That way I can get to know my kids a little AND I can make sure I know who goes where after school. Click here to grab 'Where I went this summer' Graph:
Click here to grab 'How I go home from school' graph. :) 

Join the Linky here! Take this button and add it to your blog post about a back to school activity that you love.  Link back to your post on the Linky list  below (not your normal blog URL). My goal is for this to be a central location for us to find multiple back to school activities!
