First Week Ideas: Part 2

Walk In My Shoes going through a folder today I found my transition “getting to know you” activity. I have used this activity in grades 1-3 and found it to be very versatile.

I give students the option of drawing or writing and find that even my low-literacy students will do some writing.

This activity adds a splash of colour and information ready for acquaintance night.  For schools that use portfolios each term this piece makes an excellent reflective work sample for the final term. I get students to reflect on what they wrote, how they presented the information and how they think they have grown.

    I like the boxes at the bottom – especially "I want to know". I always have kids telling me things they'd like to learn but can never remember half of them!Teddy

What do you think?
