Oldie, but a goodie!

I have used this ice breaker for years and my students really enjoy it. I give them time to explore and meet new classmates and then once they are done, I go through each category and let them share a little about themselves and their summer. Enjoy!

Let the planning begin!

With August just around the corner it is time to start planning! Each year I love to revisit what I did last year and find new ways of doing things, but before you can begin planning it is important to have a place to jot it all day and stay organized. Here is a very simple and straight-forward planning template that I love to use with post-its (it is made for the smaller ones). Using post-its allows you to easily make changes and move things around from day to day or even week to week.
