Tested and approved by both high school and middle school students!This is a great first week of school activity to help you get to know your students quickly while encouraging ice breaker discussions among students. Begin the year with an activity that supports building a classroom community!Complete one for yourself, too!Please visit us at:elementaryskillsandstrategies.comFacebook - Elementary Skills and Strategies
This would be a very fun activity the first week of school! Teacher says a statement (ex. Switch sides if you like hot dogs more than pizza.) and the students either stay or move. The kids could also talk about why they did/didn't move. Fun!!! #backtoschool
To do on the first day of school. Change the questions to be used in high school. "What do you want to learn?" "What do you need to work on?" "How can I help you succeed" "Set three goals for yourself." etc... Keep in the classroom year-round as a reminder to students.
good for new year to reinforce rules a a new way. class promise: when we care about each other and our classroom we share, take turns and help each other learn. we listen carefully, always try our best, work hard, give each other praise and have fun together. we know that every one makes mistakes and we won't laugh or make fun of them. We think about what is right and stop when someone asks us to. this is who we are when no one is watching...
