I have been pinning and saving all kinds of activities and ideas to Evernote , but I think its time to really pull it all together and make a plan. I've got the first day pretty much nailed down but the rest is going to be more like an outline.
I usually start the year really knowing all of my students except for the few kids that transfer in over the summer. This year is a whole new group of students that I will probably recognize and know a handful, but for the most part they are going to be very new to me and of course won't know me as well as the 7/8s would. So my goals for the first day are:
- Get to know my students.
- Let them get to know me.
- Teach them how to enter my room. (I am VERY particular about this!)
