Back to School Activity Pack: No Prep!
Getting to know you activities and team building games for the first days of school and beyond!

-a good student/a good teacher
-find someone who
-classroom scavenger hunt
There are also 2 creative ways for students to choose partners (clock partners and season partners) and keep in their folders to reference throughout the year. This was one of my “go-to’s” when I had my own classroom. It alleviated the stress of students choosing their own partners or the time it took for me to choose Popsicle sticks.
There are 7 different community builders that I always did with my students not only at the beginning of the year but throughout the year as well. These are:
-2 Truths and a lie
-What’s Fair is Not Always Equal
-Toilet Paper Tell All
-My Monster Emotion
Most all of these games can be easily adapted for younger grades but they are geared more toward 4th grade an up.
This packet will help to make your first few days/weeks a little less hectic and much more fun. You will get to know your students personally and academically through a variety of ways. All you have to do is print and go! It’s that easy. (Side note: 2 of the community builders require materials, toilet paper, masking tape and drinking straws.)
