Spark Student Motivation: Welcome Back!

We had a great first week of school, but I'm exhausted!
The first week of school is so important to set expectations and develop routines and procedures, but it's equally important to build community and have a memorable first week!


I sent home VIP Entrance Tickets in the mail to invite my students to Meet the Teacher! I love how they all brought their tickets with them! Kids love getting mail!

Also at Meet the Teacher, I have a display for them to pick up some goodies (welcome back water bottle, pencil, erasers, and a ruler).
 Display letters are from my Back to School Reading & Writing Bundle

 This banner is a welcome to my students to let them know I'm excited about starting a new year with them!
 I found these cute props that are perfect for photo opportunities!
Here's our countdown to a New Year! It's a little loud, but they LOVE it!
 For our Happy New School Year Party I pass out hats, horns and necklaces. They get to take these home and they probably drive their parents crazy!
 Even though we saved Fred last year, it's a fun team building activity that gets them all excited! They had different teams and strategies this year.


We discussed our class Non-Negotiables and Class Procedures, but we also have to throw in some team building and community building activities!
The first week sets the tone for the rest of the year! Make it structured, organized, special, memorable, and fun for you and your students!
Here's to a GREAT SCHOOL YEAR!!!
 
***This linky will be open for two weeks due to the Labor Day Holiday. :)

  4. I like the idea of a theme! Week one is done and is went by so fast! We will still be community building for at least another week so maybe I can get a theme up and running. :)

  16. Try filling these with your brand colors or a pattern, if your packaging manufacturer can meet the requirements. Something as simple as using colors in the interior of the box can add a lot of interest and enhance the customer experience.

  18. Few Months ago, I felt so depressed, got frustrated dealing with bad credits, but reaching out to HACK VANISH via Phone: +1 (747) 293-8514 and Email: HACK VANISH (@) GMAIL. COM gave my life a new meaning, after I found him credible through positive reviews read on some credit blogs, in a twinkle of an eye, this great hacker restored my credit score from 509 to 784 across all 3 major credit bureaus, evictions and repossession cleared, my LexisNexis and Chex system fixed respectively, some days later, I received an E-mail confirming the approval of my home loan, it was quite amazing because I never thought it was possible. Today, I can confidently say 2021 was an exceptional year for my husband and I as we now own a new home and a brand-new SUV courtesy HACK VANISH, I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a genuine Hacker.

  20. I and my family have been on the observation crew since the advent of bitcoin and other cryptocurrency, fear of getting scammed made us avoid taking a risk no matter how much, only recently did we get on board with crypto investment on marketplus247 . com and since its been more than a mere experience, everyone deserves to get the best from crypto investment and I think from my personal experience, here is a good place to start.
