Help your students connect with you and each other as a community by turning a boring old "here" into a chance to get to know each other better.

This product contains a printable poster with forty entertaining questions for your students to respond to briefly as class opens.

My students love it when I announce one of these questions.

Print the poster and tape it by your desk. Then throw in a question whenever your class needs a boost at the beginning.

From the Reviews:

"LOVE this! Thanks for sharing. "

"I used this activity the first 3 days of school and it was much better than hearing "here" 33 times each class period!"

"This will help break up the plain boring beginning of the class routines. I like to have fun with the students and they seem to do better if we do something different at the start of class. I think this will be one of my favorites in the toolbox. Thanks. Sandra"

"Super creative, thanks!"
