I had the privilege of being paired up with Liliris over at Fourth Grade Garden blog. After looking over all of her fabulous ideas at her Teachers Pay Teachers store, I chose her Pinterest Back to School - All About Me Craftivity. It's a perfect project to get to know your new class a little bit better.
|The templates (& my daughter in the background)|
1. Implement a successful 1:1 iPad program this year.
2. Make sure by the end of the year, all my students feel confident in math.
3. Continue to improve upon our video making unit for the year.
Then I did one goal for my home life which was to:
1. Save money for our first home.
I think with my students, I would have them do three goals for school and one for their personal life.
***Just a quick note - I did mine in crayon and had to start over to do the writing in marker so it was easier to read. So when your students ask, "Can we use markers?" my recommendation is say YES. So much neater!! haha
Additionally, instead of using the file folders, I opted for two pieces of cardstock which I taped together on the backside as seen in the picture.
Overall, I loved this project. It was quick, easy and you can learn a lot from your kiddos which is very important the first few weeks of school. Head on over to Liliris' TpT store and download your own copy today! And be sure to check out her blog for even more fabulous ideas. :-)
