"Welcome", "Get to know you", "Intro lesson"...however you want to label it, this is it!
Each year I have a very similar caseload but I want to still have a warm up session for my students first day of speech, remind them of their personal goals, and I need something ready for my bulletin board for welcome night. This is a multi purpose product.
Some of the kids were introduced the vocabulary words such as astronaut, other kids made a story why the astronaut was in an alien's spaceship.
This product includes several different pages to differentiate for lower and upper elementary and middle school grades. (I used pages 1-4 with my lower grades and 1,2,5,6 with my upper grades).
All of my students enjoyed this activity and I hope yours do too.
