For some of you, school is already back in session. For the rest of us, it will be shortly. So, here are a few freebies to check out...
The first one is a packet with useful back to school printables. It includes gift tags, sign-in sheets for back to school nights, posters, etc.
The next one is a cool game to teach students the importance of rules and working together. Students play a game without any rules. After they do this the class holds a conversation about why rules are useful, why some groups made up their own rules, what problems groups had playing a game without rules, etc. It encourages critical thinking skills and sounds like a good way to have a bit of fun in the beginning of the year.
Finally, check out this Back to School pinterest board. It has over 50 pins with activities, decorations, articles, teacher gifts, student gifts, jokes and more that are all back-to-school themed. Quickly peruse this and you're sure to find something you can use, no matter what age you teach!
