This get to know you activity is a little in depth, but I think it's an awesome way for your students to get to know you.  It's a book all about the teacher's life.  The teacher can include grade school, college, favorite books, etc.  I think it'd be cute to add a page from the grade they are teaching too so that the students can relate and realize that they were once a kid too.  The students could also make their own (less in depth) version of an "all about me" book too. -Chelsea Langenbach

GET TO KNOW ME BAG. This would be a perfect idea for the first week of class. It's important that students not only tell others what makes them who they are, but it's important for students to show this as well. It will really get them thinking about visual ways in which they can express themselves. -Kaitlyn Griep

Students can create mini profiles that include a picture of them and all of their favorite things. Students can have the freedom to draw pictures of their favorite things or simply write it down, it is up to them! Great activity for the beginning of the year when students do not know much about one another. -Jackie Ippolito

Students can choose to draw pictures or tape an actual photos on the worksheet. This is a quick worksheet to complete and it gives a simple overview of the student and their life! -Jackie Ippolito

This is an "all about me bag". This would be a great activity for the first couple weeks of school for the students to introduce themselves to their peers. It also gives the teacher a chance to get to know their students right away so they know how to relate to them. -Gaby Hochmuth

Using a beach ball, a teacher can write different questions on the ball and have the students lightly toss it to one another. The students can then answer the question on the ball and it becomes a getting to know you activity. Great for the first day of school and for introductions! Could also be modified to use for different units throughout the school year by having different questions to study for on the ball as a trivia game. -Jessie Brown
