Want some back to school freebies, ideas for back to school activities and the opportunity to win a $75 gift card of your choice? You have come to the right place. Indiana bloggers are having a Back to School Blog Hop! A great big thank you to Stacy at Teaching Ever After for sending you my way!
My freebie for you is my Name Jar.
There are so many activities you can do with student names! You can use the jar to draw names at random for responses, classroom jobs, or to put students into groups. The Name Jar can also be used during workstation time or for early finishers. Students can put names in ABC order, take photos of students and have them match names with photos, pull out a name and write a letter to that student, pull out a name and come up with rhyming words, make words from the letters in the name, or pull out several names and write a story using those students as characters. The list goes on and on! I've included an editable sheet for you to add your students' names.
Need an activity to do during the first week of school to get to know your students and build community? My Getting to Know You Jar is a great way for you to get to know your students and for them to get to know each other!
