This is a good ppt for first day of school expectations and class rules for a high school class. This is made specifically for 10th grade global studies. Lots of animations, pair/share activities. Also an outline for playing "The Name Game".
Students can be given an "About Me" Questionnaire at the beginning of class where they are asked some questions about themselves, and to write their name BIG on one side. The teacher, at the end of class, can ask each student to say their name aloud and then show the teacher and class how it is spelled. The teacher must then, as they go along, say each persons name correctly in order before going to the next person in line. For example, if the fifth person in line is named "Destiny" and they say and show the teacher their name, before the teacher goes to student number six, they must say everyone's name who came before. For example: Michael, Tahajanae, Danielle, Devon, Destiny...ok time for number six.
Eventually, the teacher will have to say the whole room's name without peeking!!
