This Back-To-School package (7 pages) contains three activities
for the students to complete during the first week of school. These activities help your students get to know their classroom and their classmates.
Activity ONE is called “EXPLORING Your New Classroom.” In this activity students will explore on their own (or with a partner) to discover the answers to the 20 questions. This will provide an opportunity for your students to get acquainted with their new room.
Activity TWO; FIND Someone Who..., gives your students the opportunity to become little detectives as they search for the student who meets the requirements of each of the 25 statements. What a fun way to break the ice and allow the students time to interact as they learn a little bit about each other.
Activity THREE; CRACK the Secret Code, contains a Symbol/Letter code (page 6) and secret coded message from the teacher (page 7) that the students must crack by matching the symbols in the secret message to the symbols in the CODE to find what letter each symbol stands for. The student then writes that letter on the line beneath the symbol. Once all the symbols have a letter written beneath them, the message is decoded and the student can read the teacher's message.
