Getting to know your students and creating a strong sense of community is important to ensuring you have good relationships with your students.
This is an activity that you can do the first week of school (and possibly the last week of school) to see what student’s favorite things are. It can help you get to know them, their interests and what makes them happy. This activity can also be used to help you pair students in the classroom, create groups or the answers can even give you ideas what books to read in guided reading groups or whole class read alouds.
This activity could be completed in class and then shared with partners or whole group. It could also be homework and sent home to complete with a parent in K/1. After completed, it is a great activity to work with as partners and practice asking questions and responding.
