There are a lot of different activities out there for first week at school. They will be shared in this forum with links and images. I wanted to share one activity that is incredibly simple but visually... makes an impact. I will upload a FREE DOWNLOAD in our FILES tab under 'Members' or 'Free Resources' in your dashboard.
The PUZZLE Piece.
This one piece is given to students on a piece of paper where they write their name (be as creative as they like) and then fill it with images or drawings or words that represent them.
Once each child has completed their puzzle piece, they cut it out and at this point it is important to discuss what could be done with this puzzle piece so the class is represented.
The other important idea is to find a location where these pieces can be displayed to represent their class and show their unity.
This very simple idea is very symbolic and powerful in your classroom! I urge you to try it first week of term!
