You know the basics of your students form their files - birthdays, strengths, and you can easily guess favorite colors or animals.
Sometimes we need to know more about our students. How do they handle stress - freak out, hold it in, or ask for help? What motivates them - praise, prizes?
Use my handout to find out! Pass the sheet out on the first day, or in the first week, and let your students tell you about themselves. Later, you can refer back to these sheets for grouping and modifications.
This is best suited for Grades 3 - 12, as it requires some internal thought on topics such as stress, motivation, and personal info.
