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!

I love to write my introduction letter each year ( just tweak it year to year, really). It gets some of my anxiety out and helps me to consider the students who will be in my classes.
