Spending time getting to know your students, and helping them get to know each other, creates a sense of community that will be a benefit all year.
This jigsaw puzzle will help you do just that.
All you need to do is:
➢ copy the jigsaw puzzle on index tag.
➢ provide students with time to complete each puzzle piece and cut apart.
Now your class is ready to have fun exchanging puzzles with a partner or two. Encourage children to find similarities in their puzzles.
In your follow-up discussion, ask the children for surprises such as, “I found a friend who likes to skateboard!”
This may be the start of new connections!
Have an envelope ready for each child to take their puzzle home.
This puzzle is great for the end of the year, too. Check it out
