    Bell Ringers, Lesson Plan Template, Planner Sampler


    Survive - and thrive - in the first days of school with this bundle designed for secondary classrooms. Great for any subject of middle-high school level. This is the most practical and unique classroom start up pack because it is a one-stop shop for new teachers, student-teachers, or even veteran teachers who are looking for a new twist on old ideas.

    In this easy prep pack for traditional and online learning classroom environments you'll have tools for rules and classroom management, décor and posters, icebreakers, letters and surveys for parents/guardians and students, and lesson planning. The unique aspect about this back-to-school survival pack is that all the materials relate to the theme of identity. During the first few days of school, you'll be getting to know your students and vice versa. The cohesive, themed nature of the resources included here will make that process seamless and authentic.
