first day of school - name map (with pictures of things you love)

Cute idea to use with Kevin Henke's Chrysanthemum. I typically read Chrysanthemum the first week, talk about bullying/unkind words.

Autobiography Map project with rubrics - love this idea for first week of school!

Autobiography Map project- great beginning of the school year project for a world geography class. Allows students to introduce themselves and work on map skills

Al trabajar en grupo, doy feedback, respeto los pensamientos de otros, siempre realizando tareas, uso tono de voz suave, participo activamente y me quedo con mi grupo.

Great idea for reminding students how to work in a group. Teaching With a Mountain View: GROUPS Acronym

Name Map-This is a great getting to know you activity.  The teacher creates one and shares it with the class.  The teacher then allows the students to create their own "name map".  The middle symbol represents them and then they have other symbols branching off of the center symbol that represent who they are and their interests.  It also goes well after reading Chrysanthemum.

Back to school! Name maps. Great icebreaker for the day/week of school. Fun way to get to know your students. Makes a cute back to school bulletin board too.

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.
