I also finished setting up my desk. I love how it sparkles with all of my new accessories. My room definitely needed a makeover. I'm so much happier with it now. Moving rooms really was a blessing in disguise. Okay, now on to the freebies...
Rachel Lynette and Laura Candler are hosting a Back to School Cyber search this Saturday, which means you'll be able to grab 12 freebies to use right away in your classroom.
I'll be giving away my one of my newest items, Community Building Activities for Back to School. It's so important to establish a caring, productive classroom right from the start. I like to do meaningful activities during this time that let my students get to know each other and our room while also providing me with some insight into their abilities and home life. My kit has five print-and-go activities, one homework scavenger hunt assignment, and one hands-on project.
I typically do one activity each morning throughout the first week of school, culminating with the hands-on paper plate face project on Friday afternoon. By the second week of school, our little community is humming right along because we're ready to have a productive year together and I've learned a lot about my students too.
Be sure to visit the other Cyber Search blogs and don't forget to grab your freebies on Saturday!
