Stage Estimated Activity timing 1.
Upon meeting a new teacher, children are usually scared and not free to talk about what they think and how they feel so the teacher uses a puppet to ask the questions. First the teacher introduces herself and the puppet and then she walks around the classroom asking questions (using the puppet) about the students’ names, age, favorite subjects, sports etc. The teacher holds a ball of yarn and tells the students one thing that is unique about her. She then holds
onto the string, tosses the yarn ball to one of her students, and asks him or her to reveal something unique. By the time the ball of yarn has made its way around the circle, everyone will be holding a part of it, and it will look like a web. The teacher encourages them to discover that, even though we are all unique and special, we are all connected to each other like the web, because we are a class.
The teacher hands in questionnaires with questions such as
What's your favorite TV show? What's your favorite song? What's your favorite book? She also encourages them to make a hand tracing over a sheet of paper and measure their height with a yarn. All the items are sealed in an envelope and kept by the teacher to be opened at
the end of the year so that students can see how much they have grown physically and emotionally.
