There is soooo much to think about when we are preparing for Back to School. So much so, we have written lots of blog posts that feature helpful back to school information – from money saving tips to classroom decoration hacks to things to do with the kids to starting off on the right foot.
We thought the best way to help teachers was to put all these posts in one place, easy for your reference. If you are looking for back to school inspiration, tips, or help, then you have stumbled across the right little corner of the internet! Plus, we have included an exclusive freebie at the end.
We have broken the posts into sections to make it easy to navigate:
First Week Back
Easy Back to School Activities
Books to help promote Growth Mindset
Teacher Tips and Back to School Help
Back to School MATHS inspo
Back to School LITERACY inspo
Casual Teacher help
Tips for Casual Teachers
Especially for New Teachers
We promised a freebie at the end of the post and we always deliver on our promises.
Recently, Alisha shared her weekly task list with our Facebook Group – New Aussie Teachers – and they went crazy for it!
This free weekly checklist template is what we use to stay organised and save us time in the classroom. The aim is to jot down those weekly tasks you do week in and week out during the term to save your brain from thinking about what you need to do.
Simply write them down and print multiple copies or laminate a template. Then place it somewhere where you can see it, such as your teacher planner, on your desk or pinboard next to your workspace. As you go through the week tick off the tasks. We like to leave a couple of rows free to write any urgent tasks that pop up in the week.
