Something that seems to take me forever each year is coming up with things for the students to do that have some educational value, but aren't 'too intense'.
Because I also try to use data (anecdotal or numbers!) whenever possible, I get students to tell me about themselves for planning purposes.
I've also included my parent/guardian survey along with a Spanish translation.
If you need grade levels edited, please message. Formatting-wise, the PDF was the best option.
