Whether it’s your first year of teaching or your fortieth, the beginning of the school year is always an exciting time. A new school year is a fresh start, and Lucky Little Learners is here to help you make the most of it with fun back to school activities!
Our Back To School Bonus Pack is full of activities that will take you through the first week of school and beyond! Get ready to G.R.O.W. this school year with four back to school tips for teacher success:
Get to know your students
A new year brings a new group of students to love. Positive social-emotional connections are the backbone of a quality learning environment. Get to know your students with fun and interactive back to school activities like our All About Me Poster, All About Me Math, and Getting to Know You Toothy.
(New to Toothy? Find out why teachers across the country love our Toothy Task Kits!)
Whether you are teaching in person, virtually, or a combination of both, understanding your students’ current abilities are crucial in developing a successful plan for the year. Let students shine with the “Show Me What You Know” informal assessment as you get ready to jump into a new year of learning!
Establish your classroom rules and expectations with classroom rules posters, goal setting sheets, and a teacher favorite – Be a Bucket Filler!
Don’t forget to complete your own goal setting sheet. What goals do you have as a teacher this school year? Completing your own goal sheet as an example for the students is a great way to introduce a growth mindset. No matter your age or teaching experience, there is always room to grow!
Worry Less, Write More
Take the stress out of your ELA lesson planning with nine back to school journal prompts and a student journal cover. Even the most reluctant writers will have fun expressing themselves with the back to school journal pages, filled with engaging questions, a student writing checklist, and even space to illustrate!
A consistent journal writing routine will help students grow as writers as the year progresses. Each writing prompt page is written in a predictable format, so students gain comfort and ease with the writing routine.
We can’t wait to discover all the ways you will grow together this school year! Tell us how you plan to use the Back To School Bonus Pack in the comments below!
