I did want to share a few things with you. FIRST-Call me
Next, I want to share an activity that isn't new in any way, but maybe new to you! On the first day of school, I'm going to give my firsties a little quiz. This quiz will be a little different. I have created (it's important to write down everything, including answers---even though it's obvious!) 25 True/False statements about myself. Here's the part that makes it even more fun and engaging. First, you will line up your students across the back of the room---or take them outside. This will be played kinda like "Mother May I" or "Red Light, Green Light." I will stand where ever I want the kids to finish. I will read a statement about myself. If they think it is TRUE, they will take a STEP FORWARD. If they think it is FALSE, they will STAY PUT. If they answer INCORRECTLY, they GO BACK TO START! The first one(s) to make it to me is the winner! Click on the picture to read statements I put on. I have more trues than falses for this one so that I'm sure to get SOMEONE to me. I am going to send home the paper to parents after we complete it in class for parents to give it a try. (They won't need to send it back.) I will send home answers to them the following day. I'm hoping that this not only helps create a nice classroom culture from day one, but also a great family relationship.

ALSO-I plan on giving my winner (or winners) a little certificate. I am thinking that I'll be making one for everyone because I'm not quite sure I'll get an answer from my little firsties ;) Click on the next picture to grab yourself a copy! (I will also put the direction page there too, for those of you who do not have powerpoint. You could do the old fashion cut and paste to get your statements on there)
