First Week of School Reminders

Posted on: August 24th, 2014 by Amy Kines No Comments

What to do first?… There’s so much to consider… How will I ever have time?

As the opening of school is upon us, breathe (2 relaxing breaths for workshop participants).  🙂  Run a mental movie of your classroom.  Where will you stand when students arrive? What will they do? Where will they put supplies they bring with them?  Be sure you know the answer to these questions so that you can easily establish a routine of how to enter your room.

And then what?  What community building activities will you do that first week? Here are a few resources for you:

Come back and post how your first day goes.  Ask questions, share successes, and let’s build our own community.
