The 5 centers included in this product will give students an opportunity to experience, from the very first day of school, the work standards that will be expected of them for the entire school year. Each center contains a different "getting to know you" activity. Students will work in a variety of ways; with a partner, in a small group, and independently. Each center is accompanied by a rubric that clearly spells out what is expected. This sets the tone for the year. The activities can be modified as needed and personalized (look for text in red) to make it fit the needs of your classroom. It's an awesome way to start off the year!
