This list is a wonderful resource for reminding teachers of all the procedures that need to be taught to students at the beginning of the school year. I also added a checklist for you to check off the procedures as you teach them.
Twist this and have your teachers write this for themselves. Edit the questions to reflect your goals for your school year! Fun first day activity: Have kids write a letter to themselves at the end of the year.
Build classroom community at the beginning of the year (or encourage your students during testing season!) with We're Ready To Shine! Motivational gift tags to celebrate and motivate from Mrs. Beattie's Classroom. They are a perfect welcome gift for Back to School!
Learning centers, also known as stations at the secondary level, are ideal activities to use to bring movement into your middle school or high school classroom. Find out how to implement stations on your first day of school, as you review key ideas or terms, and as a way to preview texts.
Allow parents and students the opportunity to get to know their teacher better by giving them this Editable Meet The Teacher Night Handout at Open House, or send home on the first day of school with your welcome packet.
