Still Time To Add To “What Do You Do On The First Day Of School?”

| 1 Comment

You have until August 15th to contribute your ideas to “What Do You Do On The First Day Of School?” Just go to that post and leave a comment.

I’ll be posting contributions, along with some of my own plans, on August 16th.

I know some people have already begun their school year, or will be prior to the 16th. If that’s the case, you might want to go to that post and read some of the great ideas that have already been left.

This is part of my “What Do You Do” series.  Previous posts have included:

What Do You Do When You’re Having A Bad Day At School?

What Do You Do When You Have A Few Minutes Left In Class? — Part Two
