First Days Of School....

Recently I was talking to some teachers about what they did on the first days of school. They had some of the most wonderful ideas I wanted to share them with everyone. Then I thought, I am sure there are 100's of other great ideas that teachers have for the first days of school.

So, I need your help. I want to collect all the tools, tips, tricks, advice and resources that you might have when it comes to the first days of school. Maybe there is a website that you use or a tool you use to have your students create something. Or maybe you have some veteran advice you want to pass along to a new teacher. Whatever it is head over to my form where I am collecting all of the information and share. If you think of something else come back and add it to the form.

I will collect the input over the next couple of days and then you can come back here and I will post where you can find what everyone has shared.
