The First Week BACK Pack is the ultimate package of first week activities to engage your students and welcome them back for another school year. The focus of these activities is for students to learn about one another and begin to feel at home in your classroom.
*Ideal for new or the most seasoned of teachers!
The First Week BACK Pack includes:
1. All About Me Banner
The perfect way for students to share a bit about themselves. Banners can be cut out and strung around your classroom or attached to a bulletin board for all the see.
2. All About ____
This simple worksheet is another great way for students to introduce themselves to one another.
3. My Rule for School
Every good school year starts off with establishing solid rules. After having a class conversation about classroom rules, have students complete this worksheet.
4. Figure Me Out
A fantastic Math activity that students complete to get to know each other by answering Math questions.
5. Goals for the Year
Have students write goals they have for the school year and share their goals with each other.
6. Class Pledge
Students write out their own copy of the class pledge and sign. Great to refer to throughout the year.
7. Summer Memento
This is a fabulous first writing activity. Students bring in a memento from their summer vacation and write about it.
8. Find a Friend Who
A great icebreaker activity that your class will love! Students get the chance to mingle around the classroom and “Find a friend who…” fits each description on their sheet.
9. Back to School Word Search
Who doesn’t love a word search? This is perfect for the first few days of school when you might need a moment to organize all of those back to school forms and you need students to be preoccupied with a task.
10. Self Portrait
Students draw and decorate a picture of themselves to hang in your classroom.
