#firstday first day of school activity

First Day of School

I’m into a student centered classroom. What does it say when the first thing we do on the first day is have kids sit and wait for us to talk about ourselves and sit through a list of rules?

What do we do the #firstday to have kids running to class the second day?

#firstday Hashtag

Use the hashtag #firstday to share your ideas for engaging students in an experience the first day. If you haven’t read Teach Like a Pirate I highly recommend it. “You don’t teach a lesson, you create an experience.”

Community Builders Not Rules

Awhile back I posted what Barton Keeler uses for his class rules. We changed it from rules to community builders.
