6 Questions to ask your students...I would probably have to adjust this slightly for high school students, but it could work out to be an awesome idea for the first day of school
Six questions to ask your kids on the first day of school... also other beginning of year ideas.
First Week of School Idea: Write out six questions, all having to do with how to make our classroom and ourselves function to the highest level, on six pieces of chart paper. Students, in groups of three, spent two minutes at each chart, collaborating and responding to each question on a sticky note. After all groups visited each chart paper station, I hung all of the charts up and we discussed each answer and noticed some very interesting trends.
Excellent ideas for not only for first day of school ideas, but also parent communication!
Great first week of school ideas to help establish goals and build a "team" environment.

Love these ideas for the first day of school! And her blogs on whole brain teaching, classroom management chart
Have the kiddos make something with playdough. Then have students write about what they made. Great for the 1st week.
Love this idea for the first day of 1st grade! Have the kiddos make something with playdough while you are taking care of first day housekeeping (supplies, etc.) Take a picture with the iphone of each one to add to the writing later. Then have students write a story about what they made. Great for the 1st item in their writing portfolio!
good first days of school ideas, including kids playing with play doh while you get all the supplies organized!

The All About Me Gazette for the first day of school. We do use this in 5th grade.. then at the end of the year the art teacher has them create a TIME magazine self portrait. Combine the two for a great foyer display to celebrate moving on to 6th grade!
A simple and engaging way for students to tell about themselves and share with the class to get to know each other. Great back to school activity :)

This one is a tough desicion...it could be placed under behavior management or anchor charts. I think it fits best under behavior management though because it reminds the students of what they should be doing and hopefully prevents them from talking, playing, etc.
Dismissal Checklist - I love this! Have to make it my five minute check list and add a reward system!
1 minute dismissal checklist. I love this. A little tweaking and it could be perfect for my high school classroom!! Next year!
Great checklist to have posted to remind students of last minute classroom procedures before they can leave. Especially since kids are always anxious to get out of the classroom, they often forget the little things.
I especially like the last one, so import at for teachers to build and maintain a sense of community in their classroom......... Dismissal Checklist - I love this! Maybe give a few more minutes - I love the last item on the list!
Dismissal Checklist-Great checklist for the end of the day. Depending on the grade level, I would probably have it as a 5 or 10 minute until dismissal checklist. It is easy for students to see what they need to have go home and to make sure they have everything turned in. It also helps them become more independent instead of the teacher checking to make sure they have everything. The teacher will not have to say anything except, "Check your checklist!" at the end of the day.
Classroom management: !minute until dismissal checklist. Cool idea.
1 minute dismissal checklist..love this for when I am a teacher!
love this for a first week of school community building activity!

Here are some great classroom set-up ideas for the school year! Perfect for elementary and middle grades
Classroom Layout, Classroom Environment, Classroom Decoration, Elementary Classroom, Middle School Classroom Theme, Classroom Setup, Teacher, Classroom Design Idea, 3Rd Grade Classroom
These classrooms demonstrate the many configurations a classroom can take. There are many arrangements that can be used for different grades, academic levels, and learning styles. This pin reminds me of how much teachers need to tend to the needs of their specific classrooms and students.
Here are some amazing classroom structure ideas for elementary and secondary classroom. Also, there are a few classroom plans for classroom layouts.
It would be really cool, if you were known as the teacher who changed the decor of their classroom every year. There would always be the "unveiling"...
I like the variety of classroom setup. That way you can find one that fits your needs

Critical thinking skills are what we want our students to develop. Without these skills we can not guarantee a sound and effective education that will enable our kids to seamlessly blend in tomorrow 's job market. Therefore, it is our responsibility as teachers and educators to fully understand the components of this set of skills in order to better focus on them in our instruction.
Critical thinking skills - take them beyond the basics and teach them HOW to think, not WHAT to think---this is the old Bloom's but it's still a good reference for questioning--
Internet Site, Website, Classroom Poster, Thinking Question, Web Site, Thinking Skill, Bloom, Common Core
Best resources for helping teachers use bloom's taxonomy from Larry Ferlazzo's website. Lots of links.
Great Verbs to help explain Blooms..... and create activities for higher level thinking skills. Sure to come in handy for Common Core goal writing!
Great Verbs to help explain Blooms..... and create activities for higher level thinking skills in the classroom. This would make an excellent classroom poster!
Great Verbs to help explain Blooms..... and create activities for higher level thinking skills in the classroom.
Great Verbs to help explain Blooms..... and create activities for higher level thinking skills in characters. My suggestion is to move them through the levels as they move through the narrative.
Refer to this useful chart of critical thinking skills was lesson planning -- Bring it, Common Core! Follows Bloom's Taxonomy.

Lesson that helps students understand that fair doesn't always mean 'same thing for everyone'. Amazing. Doing this the first week of school!

The Power of a Bandaid! [Lesson for building classroom community. Fair doesn't mean that everyone gets the same thing. Fair means that everyone gets what they need.]
Explaining differentiation to students. A great way to build classroom community. Fair doesn't mean that everyone gets the same thing, fair means that everyone gets what they need.
"Fair doesn't mean that everyone gets the same thing, fair means that everyone gets what they need." Bandaid lesson
Going to use this for Making Friends Patch: teaching the girls we all have different needs and we need to respect each other. Teaching Fairness: Fair doesn't mean that everyone gets the same thing, fair means that everyone gets what they need.
Lesson that helps students understand that fair doesn’t always mean ‘same thing for everyone’.
The Power of a Band-aid. Such an amazing Classroom Community lesson idea. Teach students about differentiation and how not everyone in the classroom has the same needs so everyone will not get to do the same thing sometimes. Start the lesson by having students tell you about where they are hurting at on their body, then no matter what they say place a band-aid on the back of their hand. Ask the students if the band-aid helped them. Then proceed to talk to them about differentiation in the class.
Interesting way to explain differentiation students to establish classroom management.
