Have kids come up with goals for the year with their parents as HW after open house. Aim High ~ Have students trace their arms on colored paper, and fill your door with student goals for the school year. Save these goals for reflection in June.
Teaching Symmetry Check out this symmetry self portrait bulletin board from Pineapple Paintbrush. Each child is half photograph and half drawing. I am sure the kids would love taking part in this project!
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!
