  1. Icebreaker activities: Have students introduce themselves to the class by sharing their name, favorite hobby, and one interesting fact about themselves.

  2. Classroom scavenger hunt: Create a list of items or places within the classroom that students need to find. This activity will help familiarize them with their new learning environment.

  8. Get-to-know-your-teacher activity: Share some information about yourself with the students, such as your hobbies, favorite books, or interesting experiences. You can also create a “Teacher Trivia” game where students have to guess facts about you.

  9. Classroom routines and procedures: Introduce students to the daily routines and procedures of the classroom, such as how to line up, how to ask for help, and how to transition between activities. Practice these routines to ensure everyone understands and feels comfortable.
