blue bullet point 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.

blue bullet point 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.




Welcome Back to School Elementary School Classroom Teachers blue bullet point 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.

blue bullet pointInstead of being bored, my students are excited, on task, and use their best effort to complete these types of creative writing activities.

blue bullet point 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!
