What's On Your Mind? Is a terrific way to get to know your students + these make an easy and awesome bulletin board too! Great activity for the first week of school and a nice ice breaker for students to get to know their new classmates.
Figure Me Out! An "All About Me" math activity for the beginning of the year. This could be ADAPTED FOR YOUNGER children by using addition and subtraction equations.
