Start the year off right encouraging your students to interact using their creativity and knowledge! The ideas and activities included in this unit are designed to encourage creativity and peer interaction and to develop thinking skills. Included in this resource are ideas to welcome your students back to school in the “Hello September” section. Take individual photos of your students and use the ideas in the section “Smile Everyone” to find ways to incorporate these photos throughout the school year! Set up an area in your classroom and have a “Student of the Week”, letting that student either create their own bulletin board and display their work or art for that specific week, or use other ideas included in that section. Some other sections in this unit are ideas for “Birthdays, Special Days, Calendars, etc”.
