This is one full week of middle school plans to build community, go over rules/procedures, and have fun with interactive notebooks, active getting to know you games, surveys and more!
There are 5 days of plans complete with:
★ THREE active "getting to know you" games
★ TWO community building plans that involve picture books. (The texts are not included but a link to a video of the books as well as a summary are included.)
★ TWO interactive notebook activities ~ one for getting to know the students (great to display for open house!
) and another for the class rules/procedures. (both connected to the aforementioned books but can be completed without the books as well)
★ A link to a multiple intelligences survey with recording sheet and anchor chart idea that involves active participation! (Also helps the teacher to know more about his/her students at-a-glance)
★ A "getting to know you" survey for students. (I like to put these with my phone logs.)
I used this plan with my middle school students last year and they loved the stories and activities! (Middle School students still like being read to :) )
Thanks and Enjoy!
