Our Favorite Things
Grade Level(s): 3-5, 6-8
Submitted by: Cara Koen, 3rd/4th

On the first day of school, I introduce myself to the class, and I tell them that they are going to unscramble some words that I have placed on the board. The scrambled words are a list of my favorite things, but I do not reaveal this to the students. After the students have worked to unscramble the words, I ask for volunteers to help reveal the unscrambled words. After all of the words have been unscrambled, I challenge the students to name a category for all the words. If the students can not guess, I tell them they have just discovered my favorite things. Then I let them create some scrambled words of their own. Each students gets a chance to reaveal their list during the first days of school.
