The first few weeks of school are important as they provide a chance to set the tone for the rest of the school year. What classroom rules do you want to create together? Brainstorm about learning desires and set classroom expectations. The whole class benefits from a strong start of the year, the whole year long.
Where did students go on vacation? What exciting things did they do? Take time to discover the shared interests and hobbies within the class, and work together to start the year off right.
Get to know each other! Get kids thinking about what their similarities are, rather than worried about their differences. Discover who else loves the same foods or shares the same eye color.
Whether you want to focus on group dynamics, classroom expectations, or just let the class work their wiggles out together, this lesson has you covered!
Use one of the welcome pages to set the tone as students enter the classroom, or get students talking together using the conversation starters. The fully customizable lesson can be modified to meet your classroom needs.
The lesson includes:
Decoration: Set the stage using the interactive whiteboard
Getting to know you: Where students learn about you and each other, and conversation starters
