Hi and welcome back to Attentionology for K – 5 Teachers!
Need an exciting, attention-getting theme to welcome students at the start of a new school year?
Add a header that reads, Welcome to a World of Learning!

Welcome to A World of Learning! communicates a powerful and engaging message: “Come on in. Get ready to learn now that you’re in __________ grade. We have opportunities and adventures ahead.”
