It is always fun and exciting to get to know the new people in your class. Here is a fun, quick way to do just that! Make copies of the 45 cards and cut them apart. Then put each one in a balloon. On the first day of school ask each student to draw out one balloon. Give them time to blow it up and pop it. Then invite the students to respond to the topic of their card orally. Move on to the next student quickly. This gives everyone a quick glimpse of students in the class. Don't forget to do one yourself! Then immediately slip the cards in new balloons and you have it ready for the second day of school.
Keep the cards and use them as journal writing prompts throughout the year.
