    What a great collection of “Back to School” resources! I’m a middle school teacher in the Catholic school system and have been teaching for six years, and I’m always looking for new and inventive ways to start a new school year. I really enjoyed the Ice Breaker Activities, First Day Games, and the Interest Inventory. Thanks for these useful links.
