    bulletin board

    Here's a suggestion that I originally received from someone on this board.

    Make up a bulletin board about yourself! I include pictures of my family, vacations, summer activites, etc. I also include information here and there about my "favorites".

    This gives the kids something to do during our open house which is before the first day of school. I tell them to study it for the first three days of school because the information will be their first quiz. Of course I don't take a grade on it but it makes the kids learn the information. I do go over it when we do our "new year" activities. I keep reminding them of things from the board. I usually try to make the quiz fun by playing some type of game with them.

    They love it! They love getting to know their teacher and it uses up some bulletin board space that may not other wise be used at the beginning of the year. Another plus...last year I received a lot of Christmas gifts that I truly appreciated because they remembered my hobbies, collections, and favorite foods among other things.

    Thanks to whoever gave me this idea in the first place.
