I did this game with a third grade class last year, except they drew a snowman, and they LOVED it! In fact, I have already had requests to do it again this year in fourth grade so I will use this one!
Cute idea for the first day of school. I started to make a sign for the first day of school for Eve last year and this would be neat to go with it. You fill this out on the first day and then one for the last day. It was linked on simplyfrugal.ca
On the first day of the school have the students make their hand print, fill out an info sheet with the teacher, and measure their height in yarn. Then wrap it up like a time capsule and put a label on it that says "do not open until (the last date of school). Open the time capsule and do the same thing at the end of the year to see how much they have grown and changed.
Most of you know I wrote the book “Decorating Made Easy” for LifeWay’s Agency D3 and I have been leading VBS conferences all around the US. I get to meet so many people who love VBS as much as I do. They have shown me pictures of all the great things they created last year…
Great kindergarten ideas!- Meet and Greet "An apple for the teacher is really nothing new... except when you remember... that parents are teachers too! I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year!"
