Back to School Tip, Blog Hop, Freebie, & Giveaway!

That's right. It's back to school time again!  Where did the summer go?  I just got back from vacation at the coast.....

 

What am I going to do the first week of school?  Well, one of the most important things to do is to create a classroom community, a sense of "togetherness", and one way to do that is with "getting to know you" activities. 

TIP:
One great activity you can do with your kiddos is have them interview someone else in the classroom, and then write an article about them.  One year we had students make people out of construction paper to look like the person they interviewed. We had them paste the written interview on the "body", then we attached a head, arms, and legs.  We even had them use "google eyes" (Kids love google eyes)!


In order to guide your students through the interviewing process, I have created the following freebie just in time for Back to School!

This freebie includes suggested interview questions, a paper to write the questions on , and a "final copy" paper that they can write their article on. Students can use the final copy page instead of notebook paper to glue on the body of the person they are writing the paper about. 

And now for the BLOG HOP!!!!

My friend, Laurah The ESOL Odyssey is hosting this blog hop, and I have donated an item that usually corresponds with what is taught in the first month in math: Place Value!!! It's one of my top sellers and it is in a cute safari theme.
