If you haven't entered my giveaway, hop over and enter now!!

Can you believe how fast the summer is flying by?!  It's almost AUGUST!  Today I finished up my "Write" Back to School craft and activities!  I love, love, love doing crafts with my kiddos the first few weeks of school, especially when learning about the rules and procedures of my class.  It makes it way more fun!

Here's a quick little peek at my pack!

There's a cute pencil craft, with a few choices of writing and labels to add to it :)  I included labels for Pre-K, K, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade!

 There's also a word search, ABC order sheet, and some fun back to school tags! :)
