I’ve spent the least amount of time in my classroom this summer. In previous years I’d start going in for a few days a week up to 3 weeks before school started. This year I’m going in 4 days early. That’s it. Hopefully it all gets done. If not, I’ll figure it out. Everything always works out, and it’s not necessary to be weeks ahead at a time. This is part of my plan for being busy but not stressed. There are some must dos for me though.
-Fresh bulletin boards
-Seating charts based on test scores
What are your “must dos” before school starts?
