Product Description
This is a First Day of School PowerPoint that I use with middle-level students to start the year in a positive and productive direction. The PowerPoint describes classroom expectations, is somewhat fun, but most importantly welcomes and motivates the students. I have provided the one that I use for science which of course will explore hydrocarbons, alcohols, and deliver a few wows. I have also provided an all purpose edited version without science exploration / combustion demonstrations for those who don't want to start a classroom fire on the first day. A few hidden box games conclude the PowerPoint.

Also included is a neat Coat of Arms Activity (shield). This is a neat first day of school opener that I do with my students. Students create a coat of arms using a large sheet of white paper. The PowerPoint first frames what a coat of arms is and then explains in a step by step process how to make a shield out of paper (scissors are needed and step by step directions built-into the PowerPoint makes it easily understood). The PowerPoint then has the students unfold the shield and divide it into four sections. They place their name in the middle. In the upper left hand corner they place information about their interests, hobbies, and other cool factoids about themselves. They are encouraged in the PowerPoint to use cut-outs, drawings, and text. The next section asks the student to set Goals / their hopes and dreams for this year and beyond.(Pictures, Cut-Outs, Colors). The next section asks the students to describe the people that support them. The final section has the students brainstorm ways in which this class will help them reach their goals / hopes and dreams for this year and beyond. An example that uses clipart is provided although teachers are encouraged to present their own interests / goals. Students can present their coat of arms the next day in front of the class. I have often broken the class into small groups and had each student present multiple times to smaller traveling groups in a carousel type presentation. Other ways of presenting is to partner up two students and have each student present the others shield. I give the students several minutes to share their shields with their partner and work on their presentations together. This is a really neat little activity that not only lets the teacher learn about the students hopes for the year and beyond but is perfect for framing the importance of positive behavior in the classroom. - We all have important hopes and dreams and negative behavior hurts those larger goals. A slide of teacher and student responsibilities and a few slides about responsibility and respect conclude this PowerPoint. This is a free product and all positive comments are welcome. Thank you and enjoy!
