What's Your Favorite Back to School Activity?
I am linking up with Jodi at Fun In First
to share my favorite Back to School Activity.
I have to say my favorite "game" is Find a friend who_______________? This game was shared with me a long time ago. I really enjoy it because it helps me get to know my new class. It's not just the questions they answer, but how they interact with the rest of the class while doing the activity.
Basically you have a list of ideas starting with
"Find a friend who________" and the children have to sign their name in the blank. A child cannot fill in more than 2, that way they go around to more than just their buddy from last year.
Here are some examples:
Find a friend who has a pet. ________________________
Find a friend who has a sister or brother.______
Find a friend who's favorite color is purple._____________
Find a friend who's favorite color is green._______
Find a friend who likes to play soccer.__________
Find a friend who likes to swim.______________
Find a friend who likes strawberry icescream.____
Find a friend who can ride a 2 wheel bike._______
Find a friend who can tie their shoe.___________
Find a friend who likes to sing._______________
The children walk around asking, do you like this? or do you like that?do you have this? or do you have that? You can really tailor it to fit you and your classroom. If you are doing a theme, you can have: Find a friend who likes owls (that's my theme) and hopefully some of your students will come to you and ask you to sign one of their papers.
