My mind is set on preparing for back to school, and I am hoping my students’ minds are beginning to think about it as well. This will be the first year I begin the school year with my students (I started in October last year), many of whom will be returning to my GT class from last year. And I want them to enter ready to learn. I’m seeing some promising signs. For example, I had students over the summer asking for spelling work on ScootPad:
Some are getting back in touch, which gives me an opportunity to remind them to get back on ScootPad. For example, I got this email from a student late last week:
And the other day, I saw this posting from a student I have not heard from all summer, asking for a spelling assignment. I loved that! 🙂
How are you getting yourself and students excited about the start of school?
