Make Your Masterpiece

It's week 3 of the #tptsellerchallenge & I recreated our first day of school activities that I do each year with my class.
Okay. Let me start off by asking... Does anyone else still keep or organize their weekly activities in large tan envelopes? I didn't think so. Here it goes. I will admit it. I do! I'm totally saying this with my hands covering my face now. lol. Whew. That kind of feels good to get of my chest but it's all changing this year. Where am I getting at with this? Well most of the activities I do with my class are from when I created them in handwriting (oh yes I did- face hiding in my hands again) or from the computer in arial font and very plain. How did lessons or activities exist before learning how to create resources with cute font, great graphics and TPT or TN? My goal this year is to recreate all my activities and resources in my large tan envelopes. My goal is to turn them into masterpieces.
First Day Activities with the Gingerbread Man is my first masterpiece that I am pulling out of that large tan envelope. I haven't decide if I am going to start filing my lessons & activities for each week in sheet protectors in a binder or in these plastic file storage containers. I would love to hear how you organize your originals prints, lessons & activities so please share. :)
You can get the First Day Activities with the Gingerbead Man HALF OFF for the next 24 hours.
Looking for some first day of school activities that will allow your students to explore, build friendships and make memories? The First Day of School Activities with the Gingerbread Man will allow your students to explore the school during their hunt for the Gingerbread Man, build friendships as students search together, and get to know some of the staff while on their search. Students will go home after their first day of school eager to tell their parents all about the fun they had and excited to come back to school the next day without being scared. Students also enjoy baking gingerbread man cookies, decorating a gingerbread man craft, reading their gingerbread man reader, creating a gingerbread man classroom and creating a gingerbread man hat.

My students absolutely love (like puffy heart-love) searching for their missing gingerbread men. It's so much fun to see their faces light up when they help solve the riddle as to where the clue takes us next on the search for their cookies. This is one of my favorite activities to do with my students.
Have a masterpiece to share? Go check out these lovely ladies and link up.
