Kindergarten: Beginning of the Year - Who's in My Family Glyphs - awesome way to show different family structures, including 2 mom families! An add on would be to write the family members name on the square.
Need an idea to end the day? The End of the Day Jar has 24 questions to ask students to get them talking about their school day. This helps build community in the classroom. You can call on students to answer the questions or have them talk with a buddy.
