❤️ Are you new to teaching?

❤️ Or are you like I often am and even though you’ve done this before, you’re having a late-Summer panic attack like, “Wait- I think forgot how to teach!”

❤️Or maybe you’re a seasoned veteran just looking for new ideas!


Whoever you are, and whatever brought you here… WELCOME!





My name is Katie and I’ve been teaching K and 1st grade since 2001. I’m far from knowing it all, but if it helps one teacher out there feel a little more prepared for the BIG first day (including myself- haha!), I thought it’d be worth typing out what has worked for me the past several years. I'm including helpful pictures, step-by-step directions, sanity-saving tips, quick links to resources I won't do the first few weeks without, and in-depth details about EVERYTHING I do throughout the first day(s)! Steal and take any ideas you want, tweak it and make it your own. This is for you! We're in this together, teachers!


I wish you a WONDERFUL first day of school and a blessed, beautiful school year.❤️





❤️"I just wanted to THANK YOU for sharing your time tested First Day of K teacher tips and plans! And for free! I'm a first year K teacher, and have looked through A LOT of resources to help me start the year off. But, when I came across yours, it made me feel so much better. I didn't feel overwhelmed. I'm actually following your first day plans to a T, and purchasing what you've posted on there. I feel like I have my head on straight. More confident and at ease, with a clear direction. Again, thank you so much! :)"


❤️"Absolutely ah-mazing! I have spent the last 2 weeks nervous about what to do on the 1st day as a first year teacher. I am over the moon impressed by this! Thank you, THANK YOU!!"


❤️"I am not new to teaching but I am new to kindergarten and this is a must read. Thank you so much for taking the time to give me a little peace of mind before school starts. This is such a valuable document. Thank you so much!"
