Lessons, Strategies, Book Recommendations, Technology, Classroom Organization and Layout, Unit Plans??
Let me know! :)
Also, I was TOTALLY inspired by 4 the Love of Math and her post on tips for a great first day back to school. Because of her, I decided I would have my students start the first day doing NKQ's (New Knowledge Questions), but with a twist! I'm going to tell students that they have five minutes to answer as many NKQ's as they can. On a normal day, they are required to answer two. This way, we can continue the activity on the second day of school! I also always have a student volunteer to stamp in answers and I think this will be a great way to introduce and establish the routine and activity to students.
I'm going to collect these on the second day, and then I will have some information on them to help me get to know them better. What do you do for the first day back?
