First Week Activities for Back-to-School
Now if getting ready for school was really as easy as listening to 5 podcasts life as an educator would be so much better! Let's get real. You and I both know it isn't. We know that it takes more than the time given us to get everything all set. Most teachers I know have to go back weeks before school actually begins. It's a lot to ask, and we are often not thanked for doing it. So I want to say on behalf of children across the world- THANK YOU! Thank you for your continued dedication and commitment to excellence. Even if you do it to save your own sanity, THANK YOU! You continue to make a difference in the lives of others.
This week’s episode is all about the first week of school. I know for me planning for the first week was always the last thing I had the chance to do with all the classroom set up, organizing for open house, and fun filled meetings. So by the end of the week we went back, I was finally ready to plan! Talk about exhausting.
