Snowball Fight...kids write 3 things about themselves on a sheet of white paper. They do not write their names on the paper. Wad it up and on your command, have a "snowball" (or baseball) fight. At the end of 1 minute, each student grabs the nearest snowball and tries to guess who wrote it. Would be great at the beginning of the year!
A class timeline is a great way for teachers to decorate the classroom and showcase students accomplishments. Teachers can create a spot on the timeline for each month of the school year and post pictures and descriptions of students achieving learning goals, objectives, and standards. Samantha Ruehl
