I have been using the resources in this activity pack for years and am excited to share them with you! This is a Back to School Activity Pack designed for grades 3-6. Take the stress out of the first weeks of school with pre-planned fun and useful activities. This pack includes 18 activities in 22 pages with easy teacher directions and tips for each activity.
This Pack Includes:
In the Spotlight: An all-about-me page
Friend Wanted Ad: Students create an ad for a future friend. Great to use as a first writing sample and to hang up in the room to help students get to know each other.
Letter to My Future Self: A letter written at the beginning of the year to be opened at the end of the year.
Goal Setting Sheet: I use this as part of our lessons on Growth Mindset to set two basic academic or personal goals for the year.
Interest Survey: Gauge students' basic interests and hobbies.
Learning Inventory: Help discover what type of learners your students are.
Parent Survey: Survey to give to parents at Open House or to send home during the first week of school. Provides basic contact information, as well as goals and concerns for their child.
Content Surveys: A two-page interest survey for each math, reading, and writing. One side is questions requiring written answers. The other side is a yes/no question bank. This information is very helpful to me when learning about my new students!
Plus eight Ice Breaker Activities!
Included: Friend Bingo, Classmate Scavenger Hunt, Roll the Dice, This or That, Two Truths and a Fib, Who Am I?, Speed Share, and Would You Rather
