All About Me Banner- Have on desks at Meet the Teacher night. Parents take home to fill out with their children and return first day of school.a great ice breaker to connect with each child the first day and hang as bunting for classroom decor.
Might be a good way to start the year (especially if you have a lot of new students). I would allow students to pick some maybe) that they are willing to have shared. Then you could use it as an ice breaker also ~ Nice prompts for back to school.
People Bingo - Whole group activity - The kids have to find someone different to sign in each box and when they have a signature in every box they call out, "Bingo!" yESSSS people bingo, make those kids talk at each other
Third Grade first day of school -(or use as a good icebreaker for adults!) I usually do something similar, but I think I'll do it as a BiNGO board this year. Me: I use something similar with my graders as a BINGO board.
Back to school idea - "We're looking back on summer, this is what we see!" Have students draw pictures of things they have done over summer break in sunglasses. You could also do it for things students are looking forward to this year.
