    Some ideas

    I do several get to know you activities such as having students in a ciricle on the carpet and passing some item (stuffed animal, school items etc...) and have a basic question such as "What's Your Favorite Color?"

    favorite animal, book, movie etc... The only one who shares is the one holding the item and everyone has a turn to share.

    Students like hearing what others like and you learn a lot about them.

    I also bought "All About Me" posters which I let them complete in small sections over the 3 days.

    This year, I think I am going to also put out math manipulatives and allow the students to explore how they work and also introduce simple math games to see how they work together. I never seem to have enough time to let them explore manipulatives as they should but I think these 3 days will be a great way to allow more "free exploration" before I begin official math lessons with them.
