It's the first day of second semester. Luckily my IB class stays with me all year, so I don't have a full slate of new classes to meet. As you know, it takes a lot more energy to put on your "show" for a group of kids you don't know, so it's nice to have one class of familiar faces to greet today.
After the first day, I have some tried and true activities that I like to use during the first few days to help set the tone of the class and to further get to know the students. I've blogged about them before, and because I love the activities so much, I thought I'd share them again.
Have a great second semester!
