The first week of school is like no other time in the year. It’s a fresh new start with a brand-new group. It’s a time for setting expectations and routines. It’s also a time when our schedule is still getting set so we find ourselves with odd amounts of time within the day to fill.
This First Week Favorites Unit is meant to take care of the rules and routines and the short choppy time when a quick helpful activity is needed!
Not only will you find terrific and engaging ways to set up your routines and rules, but you’ll do so in ways that promote a caring community and promote team building and friendship along the way!
The units begins with your first 7 class meetings ready to go! Discussion/scenario cards make it easy to set expectations and discuss model behavior in a moral boosting way! Most of these lessons can be broken up into smaller lessons so you really have at least two weeks of material here!
Next there's SO MUCH needed when training those underdeveloped and active little bodies and minds! Keep your class productive, engaged, and learning no matter how much time you have. With community and expectations at the forefront, the activities provided will give you a safety net of learning for all of the minutes of the day! From quick and simple, to more involved, there's a variety of tiered activities for you to choose from.
Finally reward and motivate with some adorable certificates!
