^^Editing again on Sunday. Leaving the original date the same...but adding a LINKY PARTY! YAY!!!
I'm linking up with Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies for a Back To School To-Do List linky party! Yay!
These are all of the things that I need to do to go back to school and feel 100% ready!
Print off all items for 1st Unit (Google Apps). Mark pages in textbook to which I will need to refer. Make sure to print the excerpt of Tom Sawyer. Read stories for 1st Unit (textbook and online).
- Finish creating materials for 1st Unit.
E-mail Joy about WWW for this year.
- Decorate clipboard (Pinterest idea).
Buy binder and decorate for missed work/notes.New Plan: Create ISN. Keep it updated throughout the year so that kids who miss notes and assignments have something to reference.
- Back to school shopping (maybe) - Tax Free Weekend is August 3-5.
- Organize books by genre. Label the genres.
- Revise procedures, rules/expectations, welcome back letter, and supply list.
Picture frames with lined paper and a cute bow = dry-erase boards for to-do list (Pinterest idea) Teacher Toolbox (Pinterest idea) Create file box for documentation (Pinterest idea).
- Create ice-breakers and 1st day activities.
- Word Wall/Concept Map sketch for one of my whiteboards.
- Ask my hall if I can do the August/September welcome back board. Show them the idea for the football board.
- Create hanging file box for lesson plans, folders that I'm currently using, and calendar (Pinterest idea).
- Create an all-in-one teacher binder (or this one from Clutter-Free Classroom) and/or a master notebook with one copy of every worksheet that I use. (I want to do this but, with the new curriculum starting this year, I may just make it as I go along...and stick a post-it on it with the standards that it helps me teach???)
- Get this for my desk! Help me with the organization and the staying on task! Decorate it with the labels - Need to Grade, Graded, Make Copies
- Create a birthday chart (need my rosters first!). Each month, I'll put up the birthdays! Each child gets some sort of prize on his/her b-day. Ideas?
- Create a "behavior bingo" for management? It seems too juvenile for 7th graders...but I think they'll really like it once they start getting prizes! Here's where I got the idea: Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies
- Create a station for enrichment. A place students can go to get something else to do that will enrich their minds (not just busy work...). What to have there??? Hmmm....
I swear, I just keep adding to this! Lol! Stupid Pinterest! ;)
