Nervous about the beginning of the school year? Or maybe just want some new ideas to start the year off better? Whatever the reason, downloading this lesson could greatly improve your September. Included are 3 days of lesson plans, instructions, class assignments, and a homework assignment.
Additionally, it covers all the essentials of getting your year off right - an inspirational movie clip (actual movie not included), various ways for your class to get to know you better, math assignments that help the class get to know each other better, a way to present rules in a positive way, reasons to learn math, and a pre-test.
I've used this successfully with 8th graders, but with small modifications it could be used with almost any grade level. Hope you find this useful!
