I have been teaching elementary level students since 2000. Working with kids is one of the most rewarding experiences one can ask for. I have spent 1 year as a computer teacher (1200 students), 3 years as a 5th grade teacher, and I have been teaching 6th grade since 2005. Currently I am full time elementary administrator and I LOVE it.

That first day is a very important day. That is why using this fun Get to Know You activity is sure to have kids laughing and interacting. It is easy to do. You simply give each student a copy of the activity and have them find someone else in the room that matches one of the items. That person then signs on the line. Some items are intentionally "dated" to make it more challenging! With 36 different possible ways to connect to another person, students are bound to experience success and learn about their classmates! With lots of possibilities, I am sure there is a way you can make this work in your classroom. Please enjoy this free item and if you do use it, please remember to come back and leave feedback.

Have you ever wondered what court would be like in Fairy Tale Land? Well, here is your answer. In a 3 scene play written for children to perform, the audience will get a humorous look at "life's little fairy tales".

Speaking Parts: 23 (several can be doubled as needed) Non-Speaking Parts: as needed Play Duration: 25-35 minutes (depending on endings selected by audience) I have enjoyed performing this play with my classes for many years.
