I have been relaxing some more and spending time in Florida. It is nice to go places, but it is always nice to come home :) I know a lot of school districts around me have already began inservice and several are already having classes. I still have a few more weeks to prepare. Thank Goodness! I believe I have relaxed too much this summer :) I need to get hopping! The one thing I always want to do is get my house spotlessly clean before I go back to the classroom in the fall. So far, I have never succeeded in this task, but that doesn't keep me from trying. I think I can! I think I can!
If you need any more beginning of the year forms, I have one you might like. It is a form that is filled out at school by students and teacher. It has school phone numbers, websites, etc... More importantly, it has the phone numbers of three other students in the classroom. No more excuses about leaving the assignment at school, or forgetting what the assignment was. Students now have 3 friends to call in case of emergencies :) I hold them accountable for calling their peers. After the form is filled out, it is taken home to the parent. I always suggest placing the form on the refrigerator. Here is the link, and I hope this form is helpful to you: BACK-to-SCHOOL @ HOME INFO SHEET
