Product Description
This activity is a great one to have for the first week of school. It is an interest inventory that contains over 50 categories (i.e. movies, holidays, heroes, video games). Students must list two favorites for each category. If a certain category does not relate to them, they may cross it out and write in a different category, or (at your discretion) they may simply write N/A.

There is a wide range of categories that will help you gather lots of information on your students. Such information can be used to inform instruction. For example, if most students in the class list basketball as their favorite sport, perhaps poems about sports can be read and studied in the classroom. In addition, teacher can use the list to connect with students and have an open dialogue about various topics. It truly works towards creating a positive rapport with students!

The 2 1/2 page handout is ready to print and give to students. In addition, a movie genre handout and a literary genre handout is included to help students determine which movie genres and literary genres they like best.


The "My Favorites" handout can be shared in small groups or with a partner. Perhaps students can look for commonalities among them and talk about it. The key is making students understand that their interests matter. Another option could be having students choose a few of their favorite things from their handout and develop it into a paragraph. This could be used as a first writing sample or the basis for a mini oral presentation.
