The first few days of school are filled with a flurry of student paperwork, fee collection, and baseline testing. Kids need engaging activities to stay busy while you work with individual students. This Back-to-School story, puzzles, vocabulary match, bookmark craft, and banner craft about twins, Tasha and Tio, will easily fill that need.
Copy the packet front to back. You may want to copy the bookmark and banner crafts at the end separately, especially if you want students to cut them out for a “getting to know you” display.
Once these are copied and stapled in the top left-hand corner, students can get to work! They can read about Tasha’s and Tio’s classroom mix-up, solve math and secret message puzzles, match vocabulary, and answer “would you rather” questions to help you and their classmates get to know them. They even get to review math and vocabulary skills!
Necessary answer keys are included at the back. Enjoy, and have a great school year!
