End of School May. Twist this and have your teachers write this for themselves. Edit the questions to reflect your goals for your school year! Fun first day activity: Have kids write a letter to themselves at the end of the year.
Exit ticket poster with stickies! I really like this exit ticket poster idea. This is a great classroom procedure to implement at the end of the day to assess what the students learned that particular day.
Get to know your students with a student interest survey. Use it at the beginning of the school year, after breaks, or open house and meet the teacher nights. If you get to meet your students before the next school year, this would be helpful too!
*Kagan Structures* Great concept that could be used as an ice breaker at the beginning of the year or with different questions to survey students' prior knowledge at the beginning of a new unit. Could be easily translated into French, Spanish, etc.
