Four great back-to-school resources in one bundle! Plus three bonus group jobs and behavior posters included.
Community of Success is a must have for addressing the social emotional learning needs at the beginning of the year. Students work together to understand the character traits of successful learners and classroom citizens. They will define character traits and determine the kinds of behaviors and actions that exemplify each trait.
All About Me Back to School is a social emotional learning resource that is a completely different approach to starting off the school year. This isn't your color the page and write down your favorites worksheet to keep students busy during the first days of school! Students will dig deeper to think about who they are in TWO teacher-led activities: Landscape of Me and Cinquain of Me. This resource is intended to promote a classroom community and sense of belonging by helping students develop empathy, kindness, and tolerance for classmates.
Getting to Know Me Cards back to school activity is a different approach to personal student information cards. Students share information on the cards that will help you establish relationships with your students by getting to know them personally at the beginning of the year. "I learned so much about my students from this simple activity and was able to easily keep the cards on file for year-long reference."
Goal Setting teaches students to own their learning and behavior, promotes positive self esteem, and forms lifelong habits of success. You can help your students understand the importance of goal setting and teach them the skills they need to achieve. This resource provides a guide for teachers in leading students through the goal-setting process including instructions for use, templates, and student handouts. The Grading Period Reflection handouts allow students to think back on their progress and behavior and make adjustments.
