Pop Quiz

Who would give a pop quiz on the first day of school?  This teacher does! I have written a pop quiz into my lesson plans the last five years and it is always a hit with students. 

The middle school is a big change for most students. It is their first year in a new building, first day with several new teachers, first day with lockers, first day with new classmates. Clearly, first day jitters rule.  I wanted to do something fun for each of the students in my room. I got their attention {and smiles} with a soda pop theme.

To help students learn procedures and locate items in their new classroom, they were given a pop quiz. This quiz got students out of their chairs and exploring the layout of the classroom.  

The Pop Quiz included soda pops with encouraging notes. 

Team 1A teachers are soda-lighted to be teaching your child. There are so many fun things to do and learn in the fifth grade. We are looking forward to the adventure.  It is our goal that your child's fifth grade experience is filled with personal growth as a thinker and learner. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. 

Let the adventure begin!
