Back-to-school with Boardmaker

back to school with Boardmaker

I know it is hard to believe but the summer is wrapping up and it’s already time for back-to-school. The first days and weeks of school may bring way too much to do (for you), and an incredible amount of information to process for your students. Learning school rules, routines, and vocabulary can be overwhelming for students, and preparing materials to support that learning may be daunting for you.  

Don't reinvent the wheel when it comes to your activities

Fortunately, the wheel has already been invented! You can find already-made back-to-school activities to print or play on the Boardmaker Online Community. You can use the activities as-is, you can edit to suit your setting, or you can use them just to get ideas. If you are not already a member, you can get a free Community Membership or a trial subscription to Boardmaker Online here. Check out these Community activities that you can use on the very first day of school!
