"As the 5th grade Social Studies teacher, I LOVED using this the first day of school and being able to use it as a starting point for comparing and contrasting. Thank you!"
Looking for low-stress, low-prep fun tasks that will have your students acquainted in no time?
The first days of school are hectic, to say the least! There’s excitement, anticipation, and a “Must-Do” List a mile long. Somehow, setting up binders leads to introductory lessons and baseline data and the time for getting to know one another on a personal level passes without warning.
This year, I’m committed to setting aside time for my students to get to know each other, or at least get reacquainted after summer break. To hold myself accountable, I’ve created get-to-know you activities in Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
Student pages are “Ready to Print” and both teacher & student directions are included for each activity. These activities work perfectly as beginning of the year icebreakers and provide countless classroom community building opportunities for back to school.
I cannot wait to jump-start the year with these activities! I hope you and your new students enjoy!
