Getting to know your students
« on: August 04, 2020, 01:41:56 pm »
I am switching from middle school to elementary after 5 years of middle and I am nervous about teaching the younger ones, especially 3rd grade.

What ice breakers/activities have you done to get to know your students?

What have you done during your introduction/about me/first day at a school lessons?

- multiple choice quiz about yourself (dumb stuff like your name, favourite food, favourite sport, etc)
- intro classroom rules, reward(and/or punishment) system, attention grabbers
- play a game that gets you familiar with their general level (hot seat is good for this)
- review everything again at end

if it's too much of a squeeze, i would just introduce rules/rewards in the following class
