This back to school activity pack includes the following activities in both English and Spanish:
Find a Friend/Busque un amigo
Ice breaker activity where students have to find classmates that match each of the given descriptions (example: "Find a friend who is the youngest in their family")
This is a partner activity for students to interview a classmate, and then create a poster recording their findings.
Letter to the future/Carta al futuro
In this activity students write letters to themselves during the first days of school. The letters are saved and “delivered” during the last week of school. (This is a great addition to a time capsule activity)
*Pre-writing graphic organizer with writing prompts
*Letter writing paper (differentiated papers: wide and narrow)
I created these activities for second or third grade classrooms, but they could be adapted for other age levels as well. They can be used as a fun intro to the school year, or to teach asking and answering questions or letter writing later on in the year. There are two folders with the activities in English and Spanish. They are perfect for a dual language or bilingual classroom, but can be used with any classroom that speaks either language. Enjoy!
