Your Job -vs- My Job: This is a great back to school activity. We met up at the small group table and discussed jobs that students might have, and the jobs a teacher has to do. We discussed what would happen if we didn't do these things? Once we created our anchor chart we all signed it as a contract reminding ourselves of the importance of being responsible and doing our jobs in the classroom.
Back to school activity - really fun for elementary grades... Have done this in a variety of ways in my day...but not anything "back to school." Looks like fun for the first week or so... (sit in circle..outside..)
