These cards are a great resource to use during the beginning of the year as a “get to know you” activity for your class. The questions on the cards will not only allow everyone in your class to make new friends, but will also allow them to learn more about each other in a nonthreatening and fun way. The questions are also designed to help you tune into some things about your students including their beginning of the year feelings, views of school, family life, friendships, learning styles, handwriting, etc.
The cards also allow the students to work individually, work with partners, and have some whole class interaction. If you are keeping a watchful eye, you will gain great information on how each child interacts with others as well as the different personality traits of each student. The cards are simple, but fun and allow the door to open for easy conversation during that “get to know you” time at the beginning of the year.
Teachers have said that substitute teachers enjoy these cards as well. They are good for that last minute emergency sub plan. Enjoy!
