This is an activity I do for the first day of school. I teach middle school, seventh grade, Language Arts VE. It not only gives me an insight of to who my student is out of the classroom, it helps me to see where their reading, comprehension, and writing skills are at. I will then use this to monitor their growth, since this is day one for them with me.
This slide is interactive to keep them engaged during whole group.
It can be used by any subject area.
