  6. 6. SUGGESTIONS This is a great back to school first day activity. It gives shy children the opportunity to write or draw their “favorites” instead of speaking in front of the whole group. It gives the artistically inclined an opportunity to show off their talent. Frames can be shaded in different colors using colored pencils. Crayons can be used but pencils are better. Favorites can be drawn in the little thumbnail frames or words can be written within the frames. If words are written, they should fill up the entire box so they’re big enough to see. Kids like to draw “bubble” letters which then can be shaded in. If you decide to display the favorite sheets, you might want to have them first pass their papers around the room so everyone has a chance to see their new classmates’ favorites. When they’re finished, you can also tally the favorites. Ask how many have chocolate as their favorite ice cream. Count the number and write it on the board next to chocolate. Do this with the other categories to see which ones have more “votes”. ADJECTIVES Younger children may need assistance when they do the adjectives part. Have them describe a puppy or kitten and point out that words like fluffy and cute are adjectives that desribe a puppy or kitten. The page can be used as an assessment with older children, to see if they understand what an adjective is. Hsve fun! Ruth Store: Ruth S - copyright©RuthS.2013
