The first few days

Clip to ScrapBook #2

I'm doing a few things. Of course, there is the first day going over all the paperwork and intro stuff.

After that, I'm doing this cute post it activity. There are several different topics about school. Each table will get one and then each student answers on their own post it. When all four are done, they will work together to write a collaborative answer.

Then, I'm going to try this art activity we learned at the end of last year. It's called Trompe'l'eoil. It's a very simplified version (mainly because I'm just not that artistic - ). I plan on having them write an "I Am" poem to use for the activity. I'm probably not making any sense, but I can show you a picture if you want.

That should take me a day or two to start off, then I'll get into Geography and our Mindset to Resiliency Lesson.

In the past I've had them do a "Fakebook" page, their intro essay, and last year I had them create this activity where they created four social media pages to tell about themselves.

Hope that gave your some idea.

Luv
