Having a checklist helps make sure you cover everything you need to on that first, often chaotic, day of a new semester/year.
I’ve included both a page of what I typically have to do and a blank one so you can fill in your own needs.
Tip: I keep this in a sheet protector and check the items off with a dry erase marker so I can reuse the same sheet for each class period on the first day. Then, I simply file it in my 'First Day of School' folder in my file cabinet.
Please leave feedback and I’d welcome any suggestions of other items to add to this list!
