I feel like I'm very slowly becoming ready for the new school year to start. Now if only the weather would cool off a bit I'd be a very happy girl! (We have no a/c at school, so going back in August is often very painful.)
With all thanks to @jamierykse, here's my adaptation of his first day quiz. I feel a little weird about having so much focus on me, but maybe it'll help break the ice a little bit. :)
First Day Quiz
I think I'll also do the index card birthday idea and find a "good" problem for the kids to work on in pairs/triples. That should do it!
