A Collection of My Favorite Back to School Posts

image from icanread

I realized today that I am about to start my 6th year of teaching, not counting the 6 months long-term subbing I started with.  6 years of first days, first weeks, and incredible students to get to know.  6 years of having the hardest time figuring out what to start with, what to share, how to set up my room.  6 years to figure out that every year it feels like you are brand-new and the back to school nightmares come earlier and earlier.  So I went through my archives of posts as I was looking for some old ideas myself to tweak and in the process thought I should share some of my favorites from the past 3 years of blogging about back to school.

Before you even start:

I am a passionate 5th grade teacher in Middleton, Wisconsin, USA, proud techy geek, and mass consumer of incredible books. Creator of the Global Read Aloud Project, Co-founder of EdCamp MadWI, and believer in all children. I have no awards or accolades except for the lightbulbs that go off in my students’ heads every day.  First book “Passionate Learners – Giving Our Classroom Back to Our Students Starting Today” will be released this fall from PLPress.   Follow me on Twitter @PernilleRipp.
