Use this thrifty nifty first day of class survey with students. It's essential students have a routine on day 1. This survey immediately gets students in the mode of coming in, getting seated and getting to work quietly on the bell-ringer/warm-up/Do Now. You also get to collect valuable information and begin the invaluable work of getting to know each and every one of your students on a more personal level.
It is customized by grade level, by school schedule load (periods in a day).
