Need a new set of "First Day" Activities?This 3 page set contains two interactive and one individual activity to be used the first day of school.
The first activity has students up and moving as they find classmates that have similar likes to each other. It is a great way to have students begin to build relationships with classmates that have similar interests.
The second activity pairs students to practice interviewing, writing, and public speaking skills as they interview and then introduce a classmate. The activity includes a fill in the blank form to help the students organize the gathered information for their introduction to the rest of the class. This format is very helpful for ELL and Sped students that may need scaffolding help with writing.
The third activity is a math fact quiz that checks facts from the 3's to the 12's. I have found that it is helpful to do this activity the first day so that I can begin preparing to assign extra practice to those students who are not proficient with their facts.
Have a great beginning to a new year! Sharon
