Need a "Getting to know you" activity for the start of the school year/ summer school? Want a flexible activity that can be done the first few days of school that will keep student's interest for months? Then this is what you are looking for!!
These are Facebook pages for students! I created these Facebook pages for my middle school students to fill out at the beginning of the year and post on a bulletin board. The template is very easy to customize though and could be used for any age/ grade level.
These are meant to be copied or printed "1 per student" so that each student completes their own Facebook sheet and "posts" it on a bulletin board or wall in a hallway or classroom. (Hint: Color copies make students want to do them even more!)
There is space on the right side of the sheet to put a student photo, too! It fits a photo up to 3 x 5 (last year's left over school pictures work great). Students and parents love looking at the pictures - I highly recommend keeping that section and having students bring in a photo or taking pictures yourself and having students attach them to their pages.
My middle school students loved this activity so much they asked to leave them up the whole year! (I had planned on keeping them up for just one quarter.) Trust me . . . you will get a lot of mileage out of these sheets.
Extend the activity by asking students to read an item or two from their sheet before posting it. (I tried it with and without reading from sheets and it worked equally well either way.)

mbazzi01 - Thank you for your feedback! I created a similar item recently that you might like, too. I created some "getting to know you" Twitter bulletin board sheets. These are also free to download! Come and get one if you'd like.
Let me know how the Facebook sheets work in your class, too!
maidenth - Thank you for your feedback! I'm glad you will be able to use these for another activity. They are pretty versatile. I've recently created a similar activity called "Getting to Know You" Twitter Bulletin Board Pages. It has a simpler layout compared to the Facebook sheets, making them easier to use with younger students. They're available to download FREE if you want to come and get one. Maybe those will work a little better for your activity.
Thanks again for your feedback!

Such a fun idea that really relates to our kids these days! ;) Thanks!
neldoug - You're welcome! These sheets are very popular. I recently created a similar activity: "Getting to Know You Twitter Bulletin Board Pages". It's the same idea as the Facebook product, but the layout is simpler. If you're interested, it's also a FREE download. Stop by and download a copy to keep for later!
harvholt33 - You're welcome! I recently created a similar product called "Getting to Know You Twitter Bulletin Board Pages". These are a lot like the Facebook pages. The only difference is that the layout is a little simpler. These are also available as a FREE download. Stop by and download one to see if it fits your needs.
Thank you for your feedback! I've used this since my first year of teaching. Parents, students, and visitors always linger in my room when they see the forms. They like looking at all the student pictures and reading the biographies. If you want to show students how they've changed over the year (especially middle schoolers), take a picture of them at the end of the year so they can compare! It's really eye-opening for 6th and 7th graders especially. Enjoy!
Have a Great Day!

Love it! Definitely using it with my high school freshman computer class!
murphkel - Hello! Sorry the Facebook Pages format is giving you problems. I have a .pdf version that should work fine. You won't be able to personalize it like you might a Word document, but we could work out something where I could personalize it for you and re-save as a .pdf. (Let me know if you want to do that.)
I have posted a .pdf version on my class wikispaces page. Please visit this page and download the file. Here is the web address: http://mrsticklersclass.wikispaces.com/teachers+pay+teachers.
If the file still gives you trouble, please let me know. I can try a different format (probably .rtf or .doc). Thanks for letting me know about the issue!
