A full week
of fun and engaging plans for Middle School (and upper elementary) that focus on community building, going over class agreements (rules)/ procedures and group dynamics.
There's so many activities, it's probably more than one person needs which is why this is such a great value!
There are 5 days worth of non-editable plans:
★ Day 1:
Ice breaker, BINGO game, and crafitivity.
★ Day 2:
Discussion of class "agreements" (rules), go over syllabus (editable one included in the zip file) and finish craftivity (PERFECT to display for Open House!)
★ Day 3:
Review syllabus + routines/procedures with a game
★ Day 4:
Cooperative learning activity with rubric that helps create community - based on "How Full is Your Bucket?" (the book is not included but a link to a video of the book is included)
★ Day 5:
Presentation of cooperative learning activity (Products of this presentation are also great to display for Open House as evidence of team building!)
In the zip file is a behavior system that you could choose to use and introduce on day 2 or 3.
Back to school can be hard, but having your lessons done for the first week makes it easier!
