This resource includes English and Spanish version of Back to School Activities. These are perfect for your bilingual or dual language classrooms and schools!
This resource offers the opportunity to focus on students as unique and diverse individuals. Instead of just asking general questions concerning their name, favorite things ask them questions that help them to recognize their feelings, needs and wants, question that help teachers to get to know your students.
Teachers always want the best for their kids and parents. That is why a letter to my family is an EXCELLENT activity to let parents know how their children feel the first week at school. Parents really appreciate all kind of information, not only related to the routines and schedules, they want to know how their children really feel, how do they manage their emotions. If you want to maximize students’ growth throughout a school year, we need to inform our most powerful ally: parents.
The first week of school is a good OPPORTUNITY to encourage your students to get to know their school and talk openly with you, teachers, counselors, and other school staff about his or her ideas, needs, and worries. Students who feel a genuine sense of belonging at school are more likely to do well in school. This sense of belonging is often described as school connectedness. Connected students believe their parents, teachers, school staff, and other students in their school care about them and about how well they are learning.
