What Are Getting to Know You Worksheets?
Getting to know you worksheets are a simple way to get both useful and fun information from your students. They usually include the basic facts about the student: name, age, and birthday. In addition, they may ask about the student’s interests, goals, and favorite things.
Why You Should Use Them
Getting to know you worksheets help establish classroom rapport. They show the students that you care about them. You see them as more than pupils; they are multi-dimensional people!
Getting to know you worksheets also give you insight into what your students like. This can help you engage an unengaged student. If you know Ginny’s favorite movie is Jurassic World, you can come up with math examples or writing prompts that draw her in.
Are you in need of a bulletin board idea for your classroom? Look no further than the solid gold info on the getting to know you worksheets. You have what you need to create a birthday board, a favorite color board, or a goals board.
You can also use this information in classroom newsletters (a student spotlight section) or as a guessing game brain break (“Guess who wants to be an astronaut?”). Sharing the information from the getting to know you worksheet can build community and friendships among the students in your class.
