This is a 7 page beginning of the year survey to get to know your students. It is a compilation of a bunch that I liked, so I stuck them together. I print this out like a packet and they have it to work on during the first week or two of school. It has a TON of personal questions on it and I get really good information. I use it to help build community by matching students that have something in common and then they have to figure out what it is. Some of the questions really make them think, others are silly. At the end of the first week, I like to have us pick something from this that most others in the class wouldn't know and share it. I make a chart titled "Did You Know?" and hang it in the classroom.
