PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Dear Friends,

I absolutely love using cooperative learning strategies in my classroom. It keeps students engaged and excited about learning. Find a Friend Who … is one of my favorite beginning of the year activities. This activity is a great ice breaker and allows students to get to know their classmates. Plus 100% of the class is participating and up and moving. We all know how important it is for our little friends to move throughout the day! Especially at the beginning of the year! It’s also a great way for little people to practice writing their name!

This packet includes 8 "Find a Friend" activities plus tips on how I use this in my kindergarten classroom.


How it works:
1. Give each student a "Find a Friend" paper.
2. Students stand up and put hand in the air.
3. Students mix around the room and look for a partner.
4. Students ask their partner a question from the page– Ex: “Did you go swimming this summer?”
5. If your partner says yes, they write their name in the box. If they say no, they do not write their name.
6. Take turns asking each other a question from the page.

If you have any questions about how I use cooperative learning activities with my little people, please don’t hesitate to ask. I would love to share my ideas with you! You can contact me at www.mrseskinders@gmail.com.
