Just spent some time reading my own posts and reminders from year's past about how to start the school year right. I'm still recovering from a lighting strike at the school three weeks a go and have poured upwards of 20 hours into getting all systems back online at 100%. I thought these posts might help some of you (as honestly, they helped me ;-) as you look at starting the year.
- Starting the School Year Off Right Part 1: Set the Pace
- Starting the School Year off Right Part 2: Establish the Flow
- Starting the School Year Off Right Part 3: Create the Plan
Really, one of the great values to me, is that I can review my own posts from the same month in years prior. I find this helpful in refreshing my thoughts on best practice and what I've learned and I've made it a practice more and more.
Blog posts don't have to be new to be worthwhile and sometimes buried in your own posts are a great nugget that you've forgotten.
So, let's get it started!

What a great blog post. I referenced it on my blog: My plan for 2008 – 2009
One thing that I had yet to do for this upcoming school year was to “write a plan”. Thanks for reminding me to do so.
I’ve read this information before in your blog and used some ideas in my own class. Thanks for sharing again for the beginning of the school year. I’ll re.read it :-)
I am a first time reader and I wanted to say your tips for first of the year starting up your class are great. Thanks!
I started off last school year with free school folders from this outfit and it really helped get my class organized. Each student had their own homework folder. They’re a blessing if you have to work with disadvantaged students.
