Students, parents and teachers all have back to school prep rituals. Yesterday was my students’ first day back to school and in honor of it, I’m posting my back-to-school home projects. Hopefuly I’ll remember to check them off as I accomplish them. And yes, I’m one of those people who go back and add something, just so they can cross it off of the list.

Below is a ritual of home projects I do at Back-to-School time (it’s much different than my fall cleaning tasks):
