First Six Weeks 2011: Getting Acquainted

Last year I offered some ideas for great books during the first six weeks of school here and here.

This year I’ll begin this series by passing along two resources you and your teachers might find helpful with some getting-to-know-you activities for those critical first few weeks.

Tom Barrett (of the Interesting Ways series) offers this collection of ideas, and the folks at Teachers First have put together this assortment of icebreaker activities.  (Click at the bottom of that site for even more ideas.)

Enjoy!  Please leave a comment and share what you do to get to know your students in the library.
