We are getting close to another school year. When I was a child, this was my absolute favorite time of year. I lived back East then and school started in September when the seasons changed. There was a snap to the air, new clothes, fresh paper, pens, pencils.....I couldn't wait. Do kids still get excited about school starting? What preparations do you make in your classrooms for new students and a new school year? Are you looking forward to it or dreading the end of summer? Any great ice breakers to share?
