Ten Pin Linky - Back to School & my giveaway

Linking up for the last time with Ashley from Just Reed for her Ten Pin Linky. :( This makes me sad, I really loved this summer linky. This week's theme is Back to School Ideas & here are some of my favorite ideas.

1.) Check out this Classroom Job pack from Andrea Knight's Tpt store. I just love the idea of having applications & interview questions for classroom jobs & you can adapt her pack to younger students as well.

2.) What an ingenious idea. Having a color cup system as student tables to help them manage their voice levels. Check out Charity's video post about it.

3.) This is such a cute idea to have pictures of the students with the class rules as speech bubbles.

4.) If I still taught Kinder I would definitely do this (maybe even 1st or 2nd). I sent my Kinders magic dust to help them not be nervous on the first day of school & this reminds me of that. Love! Love! Love!

5.) I'm such a word game nerd that I would definitely do this bulletin board, if the space was available. I would have so much fun just figuring out where to put whose name.

6.) I love this Heart Map as a Getting-to-Know-You activity for older kids (2nd [maybe] & up)

7.) And I love this one for the little guys (K&1st)

8.) When I saw this activity I thought it would be such a cute activity for the beginning of the year & the end of the year & see the kids answers & how they've changed.

9.) I'm really loving the idea of asking the students what they expect from me and the school year and themselves.

I also like these options.
