You are a great teacher (that's why you're checking out products related to building relationships) and you know how important it is to spend time getting to know WHO your students are before you jump head first into content.
This bundle will help you build and start to form those relationships from day 1!
1. Alpha Autobiographies: All this super simple activity has them do is think of something for each letter of the alphabet that represents something about them. Even though it’s simple, this one activity gives me 26 facts about each of my students, so that’s 26 opportunities to make a connection with them.

2. All About Me One Pager: One Pagers are a visual and written expression about a subject that is contained to one page. In order to make it more structured for your students, and to get quality information out of it, a guideline template is included for them!. Students will use the template as a guide to visually represent: Their name, favorite quote, favorite things to do, the history of their name (or the meaning), where they see themselves in 10 years, and words that describe them. When these are completed, they make great bulletin board displays!
3. Bottle Flip Question Game: This is a fast paced partner game where students get to flip water bottles Dude Perfect style while asking each other get to know you questions. I love walking around and hearing the answers to the random questions like, What animal best represents your dance moves, If you could ask your pet one question, what would it be, and what words of wisdom would you pass on to someone younger than you?
4. Teach the Teacher: This activity really lets your students shine and show off their amazing talents! Students give a 3-5 minute presentation about something they are interested in (I’ve had everything from learning about different wolves to learning how to Snapchat to learning how to tap on the table with my pencil to create a beat.) In their presentation, they tell you what they are going to teach you, the history or interesting facts about the topic, what they like about it, and what they want you to learn.
