3 FREEBIE NO PREP Activities to Complete the Week you Return from Winter Break!!!

I cannot believe it is time to go back to school already.  I feel like we just got out for break.  I am excited to see my kiddos and get back into the classroom routine.  
I hope you enjoy these activities and FREEBIES that can be used this week for fun as we get back into the swing of things.
I hope you have a wonderful time back to school!!!

Letter Writing
Students can pair off in groups of twos.  Each student will write a friendly letter to their partner explaining what they did over winter break.  When finished, students can share their letters with their partners.  
I also attached a writing template if you would just like to do a partner writing activity.

4 Corners Game
This is a favorite game in my classroom.  It will get students up and moving out of their seats.  I am putting a twist on it to make it engaging and academic.

How it Works:
Use these 4 numbers below and put one number in each corner of your room.


Then tell the students to choose a corner of the room(number) and stand in that corner. The teacher will say a math fact.
For example "Teacher says 12+0" Any students in the 12 corner are out and must return to their seats.  Remaining students can then pick another corner of the room(number).  Then "Teacher says 7+8" Any students in that corner are out and must have a seat.
The game keeps going until there is only one student remaining.
When students get out have them use the recording sheet below to write equations that match the correct sum that they hear the teacher say as the game is completed.
This is going to be a lot of fun!!!

Set Goals for 2015
Set goals with your students.  You could do whole class goals first.  For example:
Learn all sight words.
Learn math facts.
Read with fluency and expression.
Next, have students set some individual goals.  Students can use the template below to write 4 goals for 2015.

I hope these activities will be beneficial in your classrooms this week.  I cannot wait to do them with my kiddos!!!
