    I am looking for some fun activities that I can do with my students this year on our first day of school. I usually play Name BINGO and we design a summer tee shirt. Then we write about what we did in the summer. I moved grade levels, so I might be getting some of the same kids. I want to do new activities.

    By the way, I'm teaching 3rd this year.

    What activities do you do??

    One cool thing my daughter did last year in third was her teacher sent home a paper lunch sack at open house and had directions for them to pick four to five small things to put in their bags that would symbolize things about themselves like favorite hobbies etc.... On the first day, they got to reveal the items in their bags so their friends could learn new things about them. I ended up doing it with my first graders too and they loved it!
