I am excited about the new games for the Smartboard that have been shared with us.
The Koosh ball activity is awesome! I can't wait to use it the first day of school. I think students will love it and it is a great way to break the ice. I have created a simple one for 2nd grade. The questions vary. Some are as easy as "What is one thing you did this summer?" and some are a little harder such as "What sound does short a make?" If the student can not answer the question, it is no big deal, we will try to answer them together then as a class. I think this is a great way to get students comfortable and excited about the new year. If anyone would like to copy the koosh activity I made, please let me know. I would be happy to share.
