The personal learning network for educators
The first day of school. Do you still get the tingles when you think of it? I bet your students do. You want to set just the right tone for the fresh new school year. You want to keep that excitement alive in your students. You want to let them know yours is a classroom that will be fun—but still values learning above all. So what do you plan? You probably want to start with an ice-breaker to get to know each other, then find an interactive way to get into the curriculum as soon as possible. In this post I will give some tried and tested ideas to do both in the first few days.
