Since the most important day of a person’s education is the first day of school, our school bells were ringing loud and clear; vacation is over, school is here.
Today was the first day of our academic year. Teachers did not wait until the students walk into the room to make everything ready, decoration, labeled desks, welcoming letters …etc.
Teachers and students adjust to being back in the classroom, thinking about what they are going to do with the day. Most teachers spent their first day on rules, routines and icebreakers. Some prefer to stick in lessons and choose a picture book to share that with their students which can lead to make discussions about important issues.
Whatever they chose to call it – expectations, rules or norms teachers made sure they developed it on the first day.
