Start the school year on a positive note with these three fun activities! Included in this bundle are:
GET TO KNOW YOUR TEACHER QUESTIONNAIRE
This back-to-school activity will have your students guessing! The questionnaire asks students questions about their teacher such as "How many years has your teacher been teaching?" and "How does your teacher get to school?" After they write down their guesses, you can reveal your answers all at once or over the course of the next few weeks. Your students will have a great time getting to know you! There's also a space for your students to write their own interview questions - but whether or not you choose to answer those is up to you!
GET TO KNOW YOUR CLASSMATES QUESTIONNAIRE
Break the ice between your students with this fun, back-to-school activity! Your students will need to interview each other to find out which classmates fit into each of the categories. Questions include "Who owns a pet?" and "Who traveled to another state this summer?" Bonus questions ("What is the pet's name?") extend students' questioning and deepen their knowledge of one another. In addition, a question at the very end of the page asks student to write down one interesting thing about themselves to share with their classmates. This activity is bound to get conversations started!
SUMMER VACATION WRITING PROMPTS WORKSHEET
Have your students write about their summer vacations using this fun worksheet. It brings up all the pertinent summer-vacation questions using sentence starters such as "This summer I went to..."
