First Day of School Activities for Big Kids

First Day of School Activities for Big Kids

First Day (or week) of School Activities. I really like "Can You Save Fred" From: Teaching With a Mountain View: First Day of School Activities for Big Kids

This would be a very fun activity the first week of school! Teacher says a statement (ex. Switch sides if you like hot dogs more than pizza.) and the students either stay or move. The kids could also talk about why they did/didn't move. Fun!!! #backtoschool

Such a cool idea for a first day activity. It would also work to make fireworks instead of flowers (a bit more manly for dude teachers?).

First, teacher blows some bubbles and, as expected, the kids all pop them. Then, she challenges them to NOT pop the bubbles even if one lands on the tip of their nose. Introduce the concept of self control and launch a discussion about stopping to think before you act. You can refer back to the lesson again and again. "Think about that time when we didn't pop the bubbles..."
