Class Info Stations Activity for Day 1 of Class and Algebra 1 Syllabus

I read a lot of blog posts last week about people’s first day plans, since that was a prompt for one of the #SundayFunday challenges.  I can’t remember who I got the idea from, but someone posted about doing a class syllabus stations activity and my gears started turning.

This year I updated my syllabus a bit. It’s twice the length that is has been in the past (I love nothing more than 1-page documents), but I felt the need to add more information to communicate to parents.  I’m hoping that this syllabus will give parents a better understanding about what their student is doing each day in my class.


Students will work in groups of 3-ish moving station to station to answer the questions from each station’s card.  I am going to have students record their answers on a scratch paper and, once everyone is done, we will compare answers as a class and see how they did.



How do you go over expectations, policies, and procedures with your students?  Please share in the comment section below!

    I LOVE this idea! I plan on using it the first day of the semester. Do you have your station activity for sale on TpT by chance?

      Hi Michelle, sorry for not responding earlier. I’ve definitely been taking full advantage of winter break. I just emailed you the powerpoint file for the stations activity! I hope you like it.
