1st Day / 1st Week Activities
1. Procedures: I have a paper with my class procedures on it that I go through with all of my classes. Then the students have a place where they sign stating that they understand the procedures. I make a copy of the papers they signed. This way they get a copy and so do I.
2. Name Game: 5 different schools feed into the middle school that I work at. Therefore, I play a name game with them. I give the students 1 minute to think of a word that describes them and starts with the first letter of their first name. Examples: Crazy Cooper, Magnificent Miss. Martin
3. Lockers: This year I am in charge of locker duties for my team. I am going to have my students bring their locks into the room and watch this video. http://www.schooltube.com/video/7500148465389dfb0b3f/How%20to%20Open%20a%20Lock
4. Emergency Procedures: I go over the emergency procedures with the students and then I put together a Jeopardy game that they play on the SmartBoard.
