FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL ACTIVITY
Who doesn't love making a cootie catcher?! I feel like it is a childhood requirement. This year, all of my students will have spelling partners. I am planning to use this activity for them to get to know their new spelling buddy. However, this could be used in any "Getting to Know You" setting.
Here's how to play:
1. Students play with cootie catcher for 5-10 minutes. Students will take turns answering various questions about themselves.
2. When students are confident that they can answer all questions about their partner, they will give one another a quick assessment.
3. Students independently answer questions about their partner.
4. Student switch papers and grade their partner's answers to questions about themselves!
