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.
Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits: Ready or Not...Meet the Teacher! -- This is such a cute idea and what better way to interact with parents than giving! I know when I am given things I feel like I'm actually doing something right/good. I think this would be a great way to get the parents involved and to feel like they're a part of the classroom as well. 3370
