My Piggyback Idea: Getting-to-Know-You Activity... Write one question on each color of the beach ball (use a bigger beach ball). Children answer the question that their right hand lands on. If they land on the question again, the group has to remember what his/her answer was to that question... encourages active listening. You could play this in small groups of 4-8 or as a whole class during the first week of school.

I LOVE this!! What a great idea! Family V-Day mailboxes - write notes to each other for a week or two before Valentines Day. Great practice for early writers! Kids can discover surprises in their mailboxes and/or have a family V-Day party and open them all together. I'm super excited to do this with the boys!
