The first day back today was pretty fabulous I must say! Students learned the NKQ routine very quickly, and of course I over planned, so tonight I have to revamp some of my activities for tomorrow!
This was the first time I had assigned seats for every class, and it worked out well! I could tell when some kids were bummed out that I had chosen the right seats for them. :)
Post it notes on desks next to planners, 5 minutes until go time! We start the day with students in their SLC classes, that way there is time to pass out ID's, schedules, and lanyards. Our assistant principal also gave an awesome back to school pep talk to our eighth graders, which they were referring to with enthusiasm later in the day on the way to lunch!
Each period has their own sign, and for the first time, they all put their stuff in the right bin!
6 Word Memoirs "Bulletin Board". The 8th graders were assigned this for HW today, and will put them up tomorrow!
I'm using this book as inspiration, along with the original.
You can pick up a copy here!
Final reading corner. The label for the bulletin board says, "What Will You Write About Reading?"
All lamps on, light strands hanging, I think it looks great!
Agendas are written for the day, I was overly excited at this point!
Here's the beginning of our post-it activity. Tomorrow they will analyze them in their groups!
