In the fall I have my students create a Me Bag. This bag is filled with items to describe that student. I use it as a get to know you activity. This activity can be used in multiple grades.
The poem says:
In this bag you will find
Things that show I'm one of a kind,
5 items of stuff I like, Family, friends, a hobby, or bike,
So when I share these things with you,
You'll find out things you never knew
Decorate the outside of the bag with a few things that you like. Bring 3-5 items from home that you like.
Bring this back on the first day of school.
