FIRST DAY/CHARACTER ED
Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
Submitted: November 9, 2002
a way of introducing yourself on the first day of school, bring a brown bag full
of items that tell about yourself. Share these with your students. They could
be things that tell about your family, an embarrassing moment, a hobby, etc. Then
as a homework assignment for the first night, give each child a brown lunch bag,
with the poem attached. (See poem below)
children bring their bags full of 5 items to share with their classmates the next
day. This is a fun way to get to know one another and find common interests!
this brown bag you will find,
that show I'm one of a kind,
5 items of stuff I like,
My family, friends,
a hobby, or bike.
So when I share these things with you,
out things you never knew!
