Get to Know You Activities for Back to School

back to school, classroom management

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July and are enjoying some much-needed R and R.  I am joining up today with other I Teach K-2 bloggers to bring you lots of treats this month!!!  We decided it was the perfect time to celebrate Christmas in July!

It’s Freebie Time!

All of the bloggers have a special freebie for you on their blogs!  Just follow the links at the end of the post.
The freebie I am sharing is SO great for the first week back to school!
You can click here to grab this freebie.

Find Someone Who

I love this “Find Someone Who” for primary students. So often find someone who activities are WAY too challenging for primary students because they are text only! This set has picture clues to support our emergent readers (and English language learners too)!

Interest Inventory

An interest inventory is also included. This is a great way to get to know more about your students. It will help you see their learning strengths and where they may struggle more during the school day. This information can be super valuable to you as you are teaching and interacting with your students.
An interest inventory also provides great data to share with parents during Parent-Teacher Conferences. Take the inventory at the beginning of the year and then again before each conference. It can help you to share how their child is progressing and how their attitudes are changing throughout the year.
Next, all the I Teach K-2 bloggers are throwing a sale!  I know many of you are already prepping for back to school.  Here is a great chance to head to our stores and stock up!
The sale is running now through July 9.
We are also having gift card giveaways! Be sure to enter the Rafflecopter for your chance to win these AMAZING prizes!
