It's that time of year again, When teachers all over the world prepare themselves for a new school year or are coming back from a long vacation! From the 50 million things we have to worry about there is one that stands out... The First day/Week jitters!
No matter how long you've been teaching, there is something about the first day/week that can create an anxiety overload! We recognize that this is common and have decided to create a NO PREP Back to School activity series! Each activity pack comes with a total of 5 activities and supplemental materials (handouts, videos links, etc).
We believe that our no prep back to school pack will kick-start your year/semester smoothly and give you time to focus on what's important...YOUR STUDENTS!
At such a low cost you are getting an absolute steal! Below are short summaries of each activity included in this packet.
Activity 1: Students will reflect on songs in history that mean something and participate in a music/writing activity.
Activity 2: Students will be challenged to use their high-order thinking skills by answering two open-ended questions related to a powerful topic.EXCELLENT ICEBREAKER
Activity 3: Students will be challenged to reflect on about a specific event in history that stood out for them and participate in a whole group/individual activity.
Activity 4: Students will be challenged to use their prediction skills and knowledge of timelines to complete an activity that relates to their lives.
Activity 5: A simple but effective activity that will allow you to gather information about what your students know through a formative assessment
