This is a great way to greet the students on the first day. The teacher gives each student a Meet the Teacher page and a goodie bag. There is also a student info sheet on each desk. This could be a great first assignment for students to begin working on as soon as they enter the room.
Magic Playdoh! Students are given white, homemade Playdoh and they have to roll it around and play with it to see if it changes color. If it changes color, they are going to have a great year! Playdoh recipe and printable are included when you follow the link.
