With this pack, you will begin establishing bellringer procedures, develop relationships, get to know the students, allow the students to get to know you, allow the students to get to know the environment, begin establishing rules and procedures, and more!
This packet includes:
1. Summer Drawing

2. Bellringers – Finish the picture (3 activites)
