Thumbprint Self-Portrait. The kids make this based on their actual thumbprint and write a narrative about themselves... how old you are, things you like and don't like, your hopes and dreams for the future.... LOVE this!
Boggle- This is by far the most popular in my room. I got this amazing activity from Create-Teach-Share and my kids go bananas for it. I just change the letters weekly to reflect our spelling pattern focus and they go on a word making frenzy. LOVE it!
Air Lock teambuilding game. This would be a great game to play with kids to practice leadership skills. You could have the students take turns being the one in charge and giving the group directions. Leadership is another vital social 21st century skill. I would use this in any subject classroom.
