Classroom Boggle-with letters! for kids who finish early! First off, I LOVE boggle! Secondly, this is an awesome way to keep kids busy if they finish early and it would be easy to change some letters at the end of each day or the next morning!
Everyone gets a square with a quarter circle, this is the end result- could be a good ice breaker beginning of year activity. Each student decorates the square and includes their name. Nice way to decorate the bulletin boards in the beginning of the year!
I have done this the last few years with A Great Student Is.love the idea of including new categories. Kids brainstorm what a terrific teacher is, does, says, and is not. Great ice breaker for the first week, maybe as a carousel activity
