Your First Three Days


It is finally summer! Typically, fairs, livestock shows, summer conferences, FFA activities, and family vacations fill the ag teacher’s calendar of “summer recharge” time. Oh, and don’t forget, it is also your time to plan for the upcoming school year. COVID-19 is the gift that keeps on giving, however, and you might be in an extremely uncertain place right now as you look ahead to whatever your school district has planned for this fall. Though we don't have all the answers for you, we want to help you get a head start on next year’s planning for the crucial First Three Days! It might be overwhelming right now to plan for the entire year, so let's just start at the very beginning. 


Please consider the following questions about your First Three Days:



1. What do you currently do for your first three days of school?


2. How can you transform your classroom in the first three days to maximize student engagement and build a strong learning community, especially in light of current world events?


3. What do your ideal three days look like?


Considering the questions above, craft your first three days. Add a comment below to begin outlining YOUR first three days. This is the perfect opportunity for Ag Teachers - I mean, Pirates - all across the country to brainstorm together. Don't be afraid to ask questions, give suggestions, and above all encourage one another! We will get through this together, crew.

And don't forget....
