This product includes TWO Back to School Get to Know You Activities. One is for students to make a SELFIE and the other is using a fortune teller to interview a partner.
SELFIE ACTIVITY: This product includes a variety of templates for students to make a SELFIE as a get to know you activity. Students will draw their SELFIES and then write an acrostic poem using the word SELFIE. Students can cut out images from magazines or bring in a printed picture of themselves as well. You can have the students glue their SELFIES to construction paper for a more colorful background. You can also print the pages on different colored paper. I hang the SELFIES in the hall or on my bulletin board. You can also get cute ”clothes pins” at craft stores and string to hang them along your walls. All of the SELFIES look so cute and make a great display for Back to School/Parent Night.
Two of the templates do not have directions. You can add your own text boxes to these pages to customize your directions. Also included is a list of words that students can use to start their acrostic selfie poems.
This file comes as a PDF and as a PowerPoint that has some editable features. Each file has 15 slides. The slides are mainly of the same type, having a different font or words to start. Also, a few slides duplicated without directions so you can put your own in. The students will receive three pages to complete this activity - a plan sheet, a final draft sheet, and a word list. The E words are the same, but the students can cross the words off their list that way if they choose to use them.
FORTUNE TELLER ACTIVITY: This product includes three pages to use to do the activity. It includes a fortune teller template, directions, and interview questions. See the preview to see what comes with this product. You can use colored copy paper or card stock. Included are pictures from start to finish with directions on how to make the fortune teller. Just display the directions on your smart board.
