Get FIVE days of back to school lessons for Middle School students who want to "Go Pro" that focus on community building, going over class agreements (rules) and setting goals.
★ Directions for two "getting to know you" games
★ A sports card craftivity (perfect for an open house display)
★ Suggestions for how to go over rules and procedures with a Gallery Walk
★ A link to a motivational speaker video from University of Florida's Terry Jackson that was recorded by me. (Even in a zip folder it was too big to be uploaded here.)
★ Close reading graphic organizers for an article about recruiting
★ Goal-setting activity with a stamina frame of reference
