September Linky: Starting the School Year

I started a monthly linky in July.  Now its time for September!! It will run as follows:
  • Each month will have a theme
  • The linky will be posted on 15th of the month.  It will be open until the next one opens.
  • You may post a link to website or free resource, or a paid product.  
  • If you post a paid product, you must note that it is paid.  If it is paid and not shown, the link will be removed.
What will you do, did you do, or have you done to start your school year off right? How do you get your students interested in the class, and get that oh-so-important beginning of school going the way you want it?!

I included this picture because a friend of mine (brave soul) does the Mentos and Diet Coke activity as an experiment on the first day of school.  Kids leave saying "I love Chemistry!  I wonder what we are going to do tomorrow?!"

Mentos & Coke


  1. I love this idea and I really love your friend that does that Mentos and Diet Coke. My kids would eat that up. I'll link up what I do in the beginning of the year. I do a team-building project, but then we dive right into Variables and the Scientific Method. :)

  2. I want to start by saying that your blog looks great! My name is Martin and I'm a teacher from Canada. I just started a new website called Resources4teaching where educators can buy and sell lessons and educational resources. We are new and are looking for people to join and put up their materials for sale on our website. We are having an iPad draw for the first 100 Vendors who join and upload at least 1 lesson /resource for sale on our website. There are absolutely no fees to join and you earn royalties of 70%. You can visit us at:
    I also created the Resources4teaching forums where educators can discuss education. Feel free to join us and start sharing your best practices and strategies.
    If you know any other teachers who might be interested in this Website, please forward this to them and if you have any questions, feel free to message me.

    Have a great day
