MEET THE TEACHER
Send this cute little template to your students before school starts and/or display it by your door or in your classroom! The digital version is perfect to put up on a slide during meet the teacher.
You can change any of the items on this page. Maybe you know something about your students or want to add something related to where you live. You can participate too! The kids will love it!
Hand out the little cards. Have students write three things unique about themselves. Collect them. You read one item at a time for each student and see if the rest of the class can guess who it is.
You can make any changes to go along with your classroom needs. Maybe you want 2 notebooks or you don’t need paper. Then, there is a chart for you to add your students’ names. You can change any of the headings, or add columns and rows.
I love to do this! Parents really open up! It is chance for them to tell you about their child. I learn so many things I wouldn’t normally know about the students.
Tell students to tell you as much as possible! The more you know about them, the better you will be able help them throughout the year!
You will probably want to change a few items on this one. Add items from your meet the teacher page and put hints up around the room. Some of them will just be a lucky guess! Make sure to look at the trick question in the bottom row! Hehehehe.
FYI- This isn’t a traditional bingo. It is one card for all students. They fill in the blanks. Then when you go over the right answers, they can X them out if they get them right. They can see if they get a bingo! See how many bingos they can get on the card!
WHERE IN THE WORLD DO I LIVE?
I like to send this home for homework. Then we get out a map the next day and go through each one! (There are 2 options for sizes. Decide which one is best for your students!)
ALL ABOUT ME BIO POEM
Students write about themselves. This is great to keep up all year long. You will find directions, an example, and also lists of words to help students think about what to say. Choose the version that is best for your class or differentiate within your class to accommodate all students.
I hope this helps you with the first week of school!
