Looking for an easy, no prep activity to help your students begin using accountable talk, get to know how much they have in common, and set the stage for a classroom culture that celebrates each and every student?
Give this a try! You will get 2 versions of a Venn diagram for partners or trios to work to find things they have in common...perfect to help students begin to recognize that they have MANY things in common with other classmates. You can even repeat the process several times as students get to know others. Consider trying the extension idea included as well! Helping students learn to talk with each and connect to each other should be an important step in those first days of school--and this freebie can help!
