Get access to 3 vibrant and unique editable Google Forms ready for back to school! Get to know your students on a deeper level, have fun with "this or that" quick-fire questions and ask your students' parents some insightful questions too!

You will also be able to see student responses live on-screen and use this information to really get to know your students. Also very handy if you really don't want to be dealing with extra piles of paper this year!

New to Google forms? Don't worry, I have also included an exclusive video to guide you through how to use these forms in your own classroom :)


Here’s a little background story as to why I created these Get to Know You Google forms: I recently took over a new class and I had a “hand over” meeting with their former teacher to tell me more about them. She knew most of them well academically and behaviourally, however she floundered when asked about their personal interests and admitted she couldn’t tell me anything about some of them…!?

I wanted to make sure I knew something about every one of my kids, hence these Google forms were born! You’re bound to learn something about each student if you actually make an effort to ask them (and the quiet ones might prefer to type it up rather than talk about it) and you can then use that information to help build relationships over time.

This set contains 3 different forms for you. There are 2 forms for students:

• one goes deep on their interests, fears and hobbies

• the other is a more laid back and fun school-related “this or that” game

• the third form is for the parents / guardians so you can start to build a relationship with them too by getting their perspective on their child, learn what they want from you and how they would like to be contacted etc.

The Google Forms are attractive and vibrant and can be done in class or completed as homework on any device that is connected to the internet. Please note, the fancy text is custom made, which means you will not be able to edit it. You can, however, delete the fancy text and add your own questions instead should you wish to customize the forms!

I wish you a long and happy relationship with your new class this year!
