24 different activities for the first day of school to help your students learn the rules, get to know each other, and start the year off right. Scavenger Hunt games where they must find out who has curly hair, or who has a pet snake, or who has flown on a plane. Or, talking to your partner about the honeybee with questions like: Do bees get tired? Is it wrong for a bee to sting a kid? What do bees dream about? And flashcard games where two students discuss the similarities and differences between a horse and a cow, or a whale and a seahorse, or a cat and a cheetah.
Discussing and listening. Thinking and sharing ideas. This packet has lots of activities to help your students feel comfortable with their new classmates while meeting Common Core standards for Speaking and Listening. Take a look at the Preview to see several of these activities.
