It's that time of year again, BACK TO SCHOOL!


If you're the kind of FCS teacher who does not enjoy going over syllabi and classroom procedures on day 1, we might have just become best friends! No shade to anyone who does, I've just always found that almost every other teacher in the building is doing the same thing and there are so many schedule changes in the first week alone, it personally just wasn't for me. I felt that the first day of school should be exciting! I wanted to hook my students and get them to "buy in" to the courses I taught. That's why I started doing these rotating stations in my 2nd year of teaching.




Whether this is your 1st year in the classroom or your 10th, this low-prep resource will make your first day of school a breeze for you and your students.


Here's What To Expect:


6 Rotating Stations

  • Who's Your Teacher?
  • Make a Name Plate
  • Hey DJ, Play That Track!
  • Keep The Quote (each FCS prep has its own unique quote)
  • FCS Memory Game (each FCS prep has its own unique set of cards)
  • Get To Know You Jenga - you will need a Jenga set for this station


Lesson Slides

  • Includes warm-up or class entry, objective, task instructions, station slides, class closure or clean-up, & timers embedded for pacing
  • Extra blank slides are included if you wish to add your own stations or additional slides.


Editable Station Table Toppers

  • These are designed to fit Ikea's 4x6 white Tolsby frames, but you can adjust the size of the table toppers in your printer settings if you don't have these frames and would rather use different frames.
  • Each Table Topper comes with station directions so you do not have to explain the task at each table. You're free to roam around, get to know your students, and answer questions as they come up.
