FIRST DAY/CHARACTER ED
Brown Bag It!

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: SLC, Utah
Date Submitted: November 9, 2002

As 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)

Have 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!

Poem:

In this brown bag you will find,
Things 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,
You'll find out things you never knew!
