Orange Ya' Glad Blog Hop-Back to School Ideas: Happy New School Year Celebration!


Glad that you were able to join us for the third annual Orange Ya' Glad it's a Blog Hop!
I am the

If you have hopped with us in the past, some things will be familiar, and some things will be new!
This year, all of our bloggers are focusing on free tips or ideas that they can share with you to get your school year off to a great start.  Some ideas will have a freebie, others might just be a stand alone concept.  The idea is to try and share things that will solve problems and create a happy and stress free first few weeks!

Let's get started!
 
Coming back to school can be hard for teachers and students, it means the end of summer (sleeping in, staying up late, no homework, etc.). So, I have something I want to share with you that will make you and your students excited to be back at school! I thought of this idea while shopping at my local grocery store after New Year's Eve. They had 3 carts full of party decorations on clearance. Clearance calls my name from across the store! Of course, if it's a good deal, I want to create a lesson or use it in my classroom. And, that's when it came to me..insert the word school...Happy New SCHOOL Year!
 
We have to start the year off right, so why not start it with a celebration? I know it's a little risky to have a "party" the first day of school, but it doesn't have to be an hour long celebration with food and drinks. For the past several years I have had a HAPPY NEW SCHOOL YEAR celebration on the first day of school! And, I will tell you it's memorable!
 Make that first day one they'll never forget and make them WANT to come to school the next day!
This is my class from last year and I am looping with them to 5th grade this year. I plan to have a Happy New School Year celebration this year too! I'm adding props this year-scroll to the bottom to see them.
**So funny...I just noticed the student looking in my classroom window!!! He was probably like, "What's going on in there? What's all that noise?" See, everyone wants to celebrate!
 This is my class from two years ago and we watch the ball drop and counted down to the start of our new school year! 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...
HAPPY NEW SCHOOL YEAR!
Yes or no?? Are they happy to be at school? If you plan to do this celebration, you'll be excited and nervous to reveal the excitement too:) The cutest thing was when a parent told me his son came home and said, "Guess what Dad? We had a party on the first day of school!"
 
After New Year's Eve, all the party favors go on clearance so I stock up for the following school year.

After graduation, I pick up "yearly" party favors to decorate for my Happy New School Year.

This year I found a photo kit on clearance after New Year's and will add it to my celebration! Do you see those 2015 prop glasses? I CAN'T WAIT to take each student's picture with those!
 

You can do anything you want to get your students excited about the new school year, but make it memorable. Make it the best day for you and for them! My celebration only lasts about 15 minutes, but it's those 15 minutes they will remember all year! It sets the tone for your school year.  
 
I've shared about my celebration on my blog before, but since I'm sharing this one after New Year's Eve and Graduation it will be tricky to get these decorations, especially on clearance.
So, I made you a Happy New School Year Banner to jazz up your classroom for your celebration? Click here to download this freebie. Yay!!
 
Enjoy your students and your first day back!

We will be having an Instagram giveaway again!  At the bottom of each post, there will be a letter. 



 The letters all work together to give you the name of a type of orange!  This year is a bit tricky...it's a two word name!  **Hint: The letters go in order to give you the answer...I'm stop 6!** 


Once you've solved the puzzle...take a picture of the answer.  
Post it on instagram and hashtag it with #orangehop2015.  We love original ideas...so, do something fun with your image!


We will go through the pictures and select a winner!
Next up, is the sweetest Kimberly from The Learning Tree!
