How to Use First Grade Bootcamp

There are two ways to use first-grade BootCamp. The first way is to use First grade BootCamp at the end of kindergarten. We completed First Grade Bootcamp towards the end of our year in Kindergarten as a great review of behavioral goals and to help cover academic assessments in a fun way. We want to promote their steps towards the next grade level while reviewing procedures of daily activities we have already mastered in a week of camo-filled fun. What an awesome way to meet the needs of your students in an impactful week of learning.

Another way to use this for first-grade teachers is to use it at the start of the year. First-grade BootCamp can also be used as a first mini-classroom transformation at the start of the year to help incoming first-grade students and new students to get used to the daily schedule and have a lot of fun as top-notch cadet in first-grade classrooms. What a fun and simple engaging 1st-grade classroom transformation for your incoming students. What an engaging 1st grade classroom transformation. 

Setting the Stage for Success

At the heart of First Grade Bootcamp are the goal mats – vibrant and visually appealing mats that set clear expectations for classroom behavior. These mats not only establish a positive and focused learning environment but also serve as first mini classroom transformation, smoothly guiding students from one activity to the next. You can make your own mat with the template and icons to meet your educational needs. This is great if you need to focus on a different number of goals for the day.
