FIRST DAY/CHARACTER ED
Puzzled About the New Year?

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

On the first day of school, have an enlarged puzzle piece taped to the bottom of each desk. The students can then take their puzzle piece and decorate it according to their likes and hobbies. Talk to the children about how you as a class are like this puzzle. You are all individuals, but when you are put together and work together as a team, the puzzle becomes that much better. Have each student come to the front of the room to lay their puzzle piece down on the floor. When it is put together, it will read,

"DON'T BE PUZZLED ABOUT _____ GRADE...
YOU'LL FIT RIGHT IN!"

Note: The best way to set this up is to take large butcher paper, write the above message on it, and then cut the paper into the individual puzzle pieces.
