New post --> It's #backtoschool time, and I have a FREE "getting to know you" survey template for you! What are your favorite questions to ask your students?

Back to school is always an exciting time! I love preparing my classroom for my new students, thinking about how to best meet their needs, and anticipating the fun we’re going to have. I loosely plan out what skills I want to hit, but I don’t lesson plan…
