So I decided to do a new "first day of school" activity this semester. I had the kids make an Acrostic Poem with their first names, and then that first initial, alliteration with their first name, becomes part of their name for the class.
If I were a student, I would be Magical Ms. Wolters :)
Here's one a student did:
She changed hers a little to become Cheerful Carly...
It's actually kind of fun and it surprisingly helped me remember ALL their names on the first day!!!! It also creates a sense of community in the classroom to have these nicknames and everyone feels silly so it's a lot of fun!
Just thought it was a fun first day of school activity to share :)
More fun stuff coming soon...promise! No more waiting four weeks!!
