PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is the unit I used in my classroom to get each new semester or school year off to a good start. My students really enjoyed doing these activities.

I suggest setting three major goals to achieve during the first few days of school:

1) Get organized (Class rosters, seating charts, student information sheets, add and drop forms, book lists, bus routes, etc.)
2) Get to know your students.
3) Set the tone for your class.

How can you accomplish these three goals in just a few days? It is not as hard as you think. Use my activities to introduce students to you and to one another and hone their writing and oral presentation skills at the same time.

Everything you need is included in this unit. Five pages of instruction for the teacher and a four page handout packet for the students. When completed, students will have introduced each other to you and to their classmates, and you will have taken three assessment grades.

This assignment can be easily adjusted to meet any challenges you encounter such as unexpected class meetings, fire drills, and so forth. This is a fun and interesting way to begin a new year of school. I used it every year with my students, and we all enjoyed getting to know each other.

I hope this helps you and your students get off to a great start.

I am sorry you are having this problem. I am not sure I know what you mean. The entire file is a pdf. There is not a text file.
