1st Day of School- a good way to hear what they did over the summer and to get ideas on what they are looking forward to that school year

Name maps. Great icebreaker for the 1st day/week of school. Fun way to get to know your students. Makes a cute back to school bulletin board too. FREE template.

Templates and forms teachers need! Don't go crazy trying to create them yourself when they're all on one folder on your computer!

You're Finally Here! {Our First Week Back}

You're Finally Here! by Melanie Watt, author of Scaredy Squirrel, is such a perfect book for the first day of school! Visit this post to see all the fun ways I used this book for our whole first week of school! (I had this little teaser on my hallway bulletin board for meet the teacher night!) Book available online at Indigo Books.

I would need to change for junior high but I love this idea for I go over the syllabus the first few days of school... Would definitely help them pay attention!

This would be a great first week of school "get to know you" activity.
