Wow! The first week is over and it was a blur of awesomeness! I cannot believe how smoothly it went. We started on a Wednesday, but if felt like a full week because we were so busy! I am at a new school this year and we are departmentalizing our grade level which is completely new for the kids. They did such a great job switching classes and learning their new schedules. I could not ask for better students this year. I am SO EXCITED about this school year!
I decided to kick the first day off with this All About Me BINGO game. The kids had such a great time creating their individualized BINGO boards.
While the kids were coloring, cutting, and gluing, I cut out the BINGO pieces and used them as the DRAW pile.
Once they finished making their boards, the fun really began. I drew the little cards and placed them under the document camera so they could keep track of what had been called.
They cheered for the winners each round and begged to play it again later. It was so much fun!
You can stop by my TPT shop to grab this great Back to School Bingo game and check out my All About Me Bundle.
I hope your school year started out great! What kinds of get-to-know-you activities did you try?
