My Best Back -to-School Tip


At the beginning of each new school year, teachers need time to complete secretarial duties including the preparation of class rosters, seating charts, etc. Expecting students to sit by idly is never a good idea, and busy work is a waste of students' minds, so teachers need to prepare fun and challenging activities to keep students engaged while they deal with the minutiae that cannot be avoided.

So, my best back-to-school tip can be summed up in two words:

Here are two activities my students enjoyed.

Here's a FREE Higher Order Thinking Skills Word Game students can do independently or in pairs or small groups. It will stimulate their imaginations and their brains. My students love working on this in groups, and it helped introduce students who were new to each other. You will find it here.

This different, but equally as challenging Higher Order Thinking Skills Exercise, works well with students in small groups. You will find it here.

I hope these two no-prep activities help you start the new school year out with more fun and less stress. Visit my TpT store for more helpful no-prep activities.
