The first day of school is always memorable. The first weeks of school are always memorable due to the great stress. Therefore, i advise you to buy essays from in order not to experience severe stress.
Great suggestions, I am an elementary teacher but there is a lot of information that I can use at my level. I like the human scavenger hunt and the google survey.

I just learned something new! I am going to try "Crowd Sourcing" with Blogger. I know this idea would take off with my students.

such valuable information. what a great way to learn so much about students and get them comfortable with one another. the way to introduce many of the TECh in a fun application is fantastic.
