Fun Back to School Teaching Resources,
Activities, Projects, and Lesson Plans
Welcome to the Back To School section of my website. It's a new year of school and it is one of the busiest times of the year for teachers!
On my 6 different Back to School web pages, you will find fun, unique, and creative teaching resources for English and Math, as well as powerpoint activities, bulletin board displays, and creative writing printable worksheets.
Many of these Back to School teaching resources can be used any time of the school year, but they are lesson plans and ideas that I have traditionally used at the beginning of the school year.
At the beginning of the school year, I believe that it is important to engage my students in learning from the moment that they walk through the door of my classroom.
I often have my students complete traditional activities such as writing about their summer holidays, interviewing a classmate, or having to write a description about themselves. But, I've created fun lesson plans and unique writing templates for these traditionally boring first week of school activities.
Instead of being bored, my students are excited, on task, and use their best effort to complete these types of creative writing activities.
I hope that you will find some ideas for Back to School lesson plans on the following pages that will save you time in preparing your lessons and engage your students in learning!
Take your time and look through the various Back to School teaching resources pages that I have created by clicking on the 6 chalkboards shown below.
