Labor Day - I went into school for a few hours today, thought I would be the only one in the building, but there were a few of us milling around getting ready for our first day back on Wednesday. Tomorrow we have a new student orientation and picnic for grades K-8, that will take up most of the day, so not a lot of prep time.
I set up all of my student's notebooks. It didn't take as long as I thought it would. I photocopied everything I needed, used the paper cutter to cut those pages that needed it, lined the notebooks up like an assembly line and went to work!
I have the inside cover (rules and grading), the back cover (science buddies), and pages 1-9 glued in (except for the SpongeBob safety challenge on p 8, that will be glued in when we do the lesson). I almost finished a bottle of glue, which I bought for only 30 cents! Needless to say I stocked up.
I know that the time I put in today will save a ton of class time and we can get right into the notebook and the activities. I will have them fill in the table of contents and start numbering the pages on the 1st and 2nd day.
