Teacher Interview: 1st day of school
Make up index cards with only the answers to the questions on them. Pass out the index cards to students. Play “Who Has? I Have.” Ask the class…..”Who thinks they have the card with the answer to this question: What is my favorite color?” As each student answers, open up the conversation and discuss this part of your life.
When a student gives you the correct answer, take their card, but ask them a similar question and let them share with the class.
These are the questions I’ve decided to use. Be sure you have a question for every student.
