Get to know all kinds of things about your students from this awesome packet. Of course you will learn things by them answering the questions, but this packet provides you with other opportunities to find things out about them. You will be able to tell if they are able to follow directions, if they can write complete sentences, if their answers match what the question is looking for, as well as what "home" means/is to them. You will also be able to tell the amount of self confidence they have through the "describe 3 things you're and expert in and why" section.
If you'd like to save on colored ink (because we all know how pricey it it) you could print the page with the starbursts that have the questions on them- Page 2- as a poster and have it hanging up for them to all see the questions. You could also print the blank starbursts- Page 3- as a poster and have them all come up and write their answers on it together (or do one per group and have them share with the class.)
This could also be used throughout the school year as your Star Student of the week material.
