One important thing about back to school time is getting to know our students. When we know our students better we can tailor our instruction to meet their needs and interests. Differentiation is the heart of what we do.
If you head over to my blog, you can read about 10 Ideas to Get to Know Your Students and while you are there you can download several free interest inventories to use this school year. There are inventories for both your students and their parents (on the students).
I hope you have a fabulous school year!
