Here’s a quick tip to do doing the first week of school: Create a classroom scavenger hunt. I wrote up a half sheet of questions for things for students to look for around the classroom. I included asking where the questions words were located in the classroom, as well as having them find certain information by looking at the bulletin boards and posters, such as the translation for a movie, or the colors of a certain Flag.
This helps students realize that the the classroom itself is also a reference. We teachers spend a lot of time in organizing and decorating our classroom to help students. Using this scavenger hunt, it gets students up and moving, but lets them see the rich resources of information you have made available to them.
