PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Back to school is always such an exciting time for teachers and students especially MIDDLE SCHOOL Students! It can also be a trying time for our new adolescent kids. I found that middle school classrooms need to build community and set boundaries first thing!

In this packet, I'm providing several activities, handouts, ideas and tools to make your first few days of middle school teaching easier and less stressful!

The ideas come from a middle school math teacher, so they have that flavor, but any teacher can benefit and use the resources. Most of the files are editable so that you can remove my name or specifics from the documents so the kids give you all the credit! You may also need to change some procedures or stuff to fit your classroom. These are living, breathing documents that I use and update EVERY year!

For the past several years, these have been a staple in my BACK TO SCHOOL arsenal! Of course I try new stuff, but these have stood the test of time. Last year added lots of activities and discussion on "Filling Your Bucket" - it went over very well and was affectionately visited many times during the year. I didn't expect such a warm response from 8th graders! If you get a chance, check it out! (I don't have original resources, but there are tons on TpT!)

Enjoy your new year & TAKE CARE of YOURSELF!!
