Introduce Yourself in Three Little Words
Breaking the ice during the first few weeks of school is always tricky. We, here at The Things You Can Read, are always trying to do it better. This year we decided to try this activity. Hand students an index card as they enter the room, and tell them they need to write three words that describe themselves on the card. Make sure students understand that they will introduce themselves to the class using just these three words. In other words, they need to choose wisely!
Also, consider as a pre-activity reviewing adjectives and nouns; since often the words chosen by folks tend to fall into these two parts of speech. If you want to extend this activity ask students to take their three words and write three sentences or even a paragraph that describes them.
Example: mom, librarian, banjoist
