Summer! It is time to relax and get to that stack of books on my night stand. But also it is time to work on planning and prepping for next year.
I have a few things to help you out with planning for next year and for those first few days back! These links below will take you to my Teacher's Pay Teachers store to download the product.
And best of all--they are FREE!!
I created this curriculum map to help you plan the year, term, semester, or even a unit! It has places to enter your essential question, standards, assessments, and "I Can" statements.
This is the perfect Back To School activity to get to know your students. Doodle notes are a great way for students to be engaged and stay focused. The students have 10 tasks to complete--
*Draw a Selfie
*Answer 5 "Casual" questions
*Answer 3 Somewhat Personal questions
*Answer 1 Very Personal question
Students create their answers in a series of pictures and words. Then I love to hang these doodle notes around the classroom and outside in the hallway so they can get to know each other. This activity is also a great way to introduce using Sketchnotes/Doodle Notes to your students.
Have you ever wanted something to give the parents at Back To School night that answers all their questions? I have! I created this brochure that you can make to give to the parents. It includes a place to put a picture of you and contact information. The panels in the brochure include: what we are reading, what we will be writing, about me, homework expectations, and the supplies needed for the school year. You can keep these sections or create your own!
