One of the best ways that you can create a sense of community in your classroom from the very beginning is by being intentional about the activities you choose, especially during that first week of school. It’s important to be strategic about these activities not only to build that community, but also to teach routines inside your classroom.
I know you’ve got more than enough on your plate right now, so I’m going to give you five fantastic first weeks of school activities, plus book recommendations that pair well with each activity. These suggestions will help you build community and teach expectations right away, all while reading great literature!
