This freebie is a zipped file containing both a non-editable PDF and an editable Powerpoint file.These Back to School forms for your new parents to fill out will give you helpful information so you can hit the ground running! I love getting a little input on my student's mindset...especially whether s/he has more of a growth mindset or fixed mindset.The non-editable file is designed with first graders in mind, but can apply to other grades, as well.
This is a comprehensive 7 page document that lists and categorizes every single procedure/routine to teach in your classroom. This takes all of the guess work out of your beginning of the year management plan.
This is another idea for reminders, quotes, and anything else we would want to write down. The squares could be pieces of chalkboards, or we could make it with a blackboard pant from Michael's that we could use for something else later on.
