At the beginning of the school year I like to make sure that I get to know all of my students. I also want to make sure that they understand my high expectations for the school year. This activity combines both of these beginning of the school year goals. They will create a mobile that has information about them. When completed, we will discuss them as a class, the students will reflect on their work, and I will give individual feedback that helps to clarify my expectations for the school year. This activity really sets a tone for the entire year and helps me to get to know my students at the same time.
