Poems are the best way to welcome students to a brand new year! Includes 7 poems in color & b/w and the Golden Rule! Also included are 3 writing activities/responses with 4 different kinds of paper to differentiate for your students and two contracts (for two poems) for the students to sign. I use every single one of these poems at the beginning of the school year!
Effectively manage your new middle school or high school classroom by establishing these five classroom routines in the beginning of the year. First week classroom routines for effective classroom management.
Figure Me Out! An "All About Me" math activity for the beginning of the year. This could be ADAPTED FOR YOUNGER children by using addition and subtraction equations.

A great beginning of the year activity to get to know your students! This would make a great activity for the first week of school or as something to showcase on Open House / Back to School night! You are learning about your students and they get to learn more about each other! It's also a creative way for students to set goals, express their favorites, and have something to look back on for their school year in your grade.
