PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Back to School Questions with a Twist!

Students circle around the room filling in their answers to several prompts into puzzle pieces and then decorate their pieces. At the end of the lesson, the puzzles are shared and you as the teacher can discuss how a puzzle would be incomplete if even one student was missing (or one student wasn't trying their best to make this a great year). This is a great activity at the beginning of the year, to get students thinking about expectations and also gives them an opportunity to share their opinion on what they find effective in the classroom.

The completed puzzles can then be posted on the wall or window.

This activity includes prompts for goals and expectations AND some icebreaker get to know you questions. There is both a black and white and colored version of every prompt. There are also two different puzzles in order to accommodate different class sizes.

Prompts include:
To have a great year, a student needs to....
To have a great year, a teacher needs to....
To have a great year, a class needs to...
My goals for this year are...
My favorite hobby is...
My favorite book is...
