It’s much too soonbut the fact is that it’s coming.
In fact, a district a few miles away from me starts school THIS FRIDAY! Throughout the summer, I have been compiling some brilliant first day of school activities from around the blogosphere. I always feel like I hear about the great activities too late–it’s either a day or two before school starts or I hear about them AFTER school starts. I highly encourage you to click on each picture or the link below the picture to visit the blog post with more details! Ms to get to know students!
This would be great to do in rotating groups so that students get talking to all of the kids in the class. This gallery walk is a non-threatening and entertaining way for you to learn more about your students and to let them learn more about each other. This type of activity is also perfect for setting expectations for a moving around the classroom activity or lesson. She has several other back to school activities on her blog post, too! Pretty much anything that Jennifer Runde does is amazing, and this artistic activity is no exception. Your students will love creating these I Am poems, and they will make a great bulletin board display, too. This is another activity that requires students to get a little artistic.
I created these task cards last year, and they were so much fun to use with students on the first day. Kids loved playing SCOOT and getting to know each other. They giggled at many of the questions! One of my Facebook fans shared this idea. All you need are some plastic cups, and you have the perfect cooperative learning activity! When I taught 3rd grade, this was always the highlight of the first day of school. Students are hooked when you pull out lifesavers and gummy worms, but when they learn what their activity is, they are even more excited.
