A New Year Begins....

School starts in my district tomorrow, and every teacher I know has said the same thing. “Wow, that was a short summer!” Yep, I have to agree. It was a short summer, but like it or not the first day is here and by the end of next week summer will just be a hazy memory in our rear view mirrors.

Here are a few previous posts I’ve published here at History Is Elementary that deal with the nuts and bolts of getting ready for a new year…..things on my desk, various forms, and procedures, and one situation where I pulled a solution out of my a……out of thin air when I needed it most.

Hope your first day was as smooth as mine - just wanted to give you a A+ on your study guide. When you posted it last year I showed it to my fellow 7th grade teachers and we began using the same format. I also email it to my parents. It's been very successful.
