I'm sure this has been thought of, but we should have a place to post all of those getting-to-know you actvities for the first weeks of school...if there is already one, please let the new teachers know how to find it! (I tried to search for it, no luck for me.) Getting to Know Teacher 1. I'm sorry to everyone, but I am taking the quiz...write a short quiz about yourself for the students to answer and then grade it! It's fun to see what they think of you from just looking at you. My favorite question on mine is I have never been a. skydiving b. snowboarding c. to Mexico d. to Norman, OK The answer they choose is always skydiving, but it is actually c. You should see their eyes when they find out what I have done. I get a miniscule amount of respect... Getting to Know Student Give students a card as they come into the room - the cards will represent where they sit in class, as well as provide for the game... if they have a...they will share heart...something they love to do spade...something they dig a club...an organization or club they would like to join or they already belong to (in or out of school) a diamond...something they treasure (the spade and heart are kind of the same, but I don't feel it matters as long as people are sharing) Happy Hunting!
