Back to School Planning Guide

New school year, new classroom adventures, new sets of challenges! To meet them it takes planning, experimentation and a good sense of humor. Our Back to School Planning Guide is designed to address at least two parts of that list.

We've culled links to recommended sites that help with classroom planning and first day of school activities and suggest new technologies to try.

We hope you find this helpful. Have a wonderful school year!
