Each morning, during registration, I like to freeze a notice slide on the interactive board. The slide will contain the date, important notices and or instructions, an activity, reminders, an inspirational quote and usually some trivia for students to read.
This resource includes 17 slides to use during registration for October 2017. There are no slides during the half term week. Each editable slide states the date, a famous birthday, references either to a key event in history or a key awareness day and also a motivational, mindful or happiness quote.
With one key notice slide, students can organise themselves accordingly during registration while you can carry on with the register, mentoring, emails etc..
Some slides include the birthdays of famous singers and artists. I like to play music from the artist during registration. This is something for you to consider.
Each slide has space for you to type in your own notices, activity and reminders.
I have additionally attached two sample slides from October 2016 that I used with my form.
Hope you find it useful.
