Love this idea for the first day of school! Have the kiddos make something with playdough while you are taking care of first day housekeeping (supplies, etc.) Then have students write about what they made. Great for the 1st item in their writing portfolio!....My kiddos could draw or try to write what they made...that would turn it into a good assessment tool for me, too!

great idea    It can be soooo time consuming to answer the questions...Can we use markers?, Do we turn this in?, Is this a talking activity? I love using these assignment choice signs to answer those questions without me doing the work.  Once I give directions for an activity, I quickly place checks and X's by the cards and my students know exactly where to look for the answer.
