This amazing activity has become a tradition in my classroom!
The magic happens when you provide students a small ball of white play-doh. If the play-doh changes color when the students squish it...and it will, it ensures that the student will have a great year!
This is such a fun way to help students feel comfortable in their new classroom. As students explore with the play-doh, it may even give you a few necessary minutes to deal with all the "first day" stuff you have to do!
