This a great back to school questionnaire to get to know your students.
There are 13 different open-response questions students answer about themselves including:
-What are you favorite/least favorite things to do at school?
-Who do you admire the most? Why?
-What are you most afraid of?
-How do you prefer to work - along, with a partner, in a group?
There is also a chance for students to reflect and answer some questions regarding their past experiences with math such as: what are your strengths when it comes to math, what are some challenges, what grade do you expect to receive, etc.
This can be edited to use for any subject area. Simply change the word math to whatever subject you teach!
