    Great idea for starting off the school year! Then could do a chart for what teachers want in their students.

    This is a great start of school activity... find (or have kids find) a bunch of adjectives and then select which ones describe their ideal teacher. Make it into a bulletin board. You could also select adjectives describing the kind of students you want! Might be good when creating a Social Contract...
