You'll Never Have More Time Than at the Beginning
I know that at the beginning of each school year you likely go to your classroom a week before you're required to and start getting things ready. I also know that it feels like there is never enough time. At the start of the year though, you actually have a bit of flexibility. Specials schedules may not have started yet, pull-out services haven't been established, curriculum expectations may be slightly lighter... so it's a great time to take the time to get to know your students and let them get to know you. Scholastic has a nice set of ice-breakers on their site right now. I've linked it here. See if one or more appeal to you.
