Liven up your first days of school with this mini-unit, Sweet Treats. Filled with community building activities, your students will never know that they are learning about themselves and their classmates while having fun doing it! The activities are simple and don't take a lot of time, so you will still have time to do those "mandatory" first week activities.
Included in this resource are:
~Student Welcome Gift from the Teacher: Included are sucker cards that say, "This Year Will Be Sweet!" Attach a sucker with decorative ribbon to make it extra special!
~It's Cookie Time: Use this as a pairing activity anytime of the year! Students will be practicing time on the hour and half-hour. Give each student a card and have them mingle until they find their match. Both digital and analog clocks are used. Once all partners have been formed, move on to the next activity.
~Smart Cookie Bulletin Board Display: Have students think of a recent time they've been proud of themselves academically. They can fill in the smart cookie printable. Hang these for an awesome display for Open House!
~Extra Sweet Shop: This is a fun way to create expert groups in your room, or groups of students that excel in a specific area of study. Hang the included posters and have students write their name on that poster. When a student needs help in the future, they can look on the posters for peer assistance. Keep up your expert group posters all year
