Can You Guess Who I Am {freebie}

Just  a few days ago, I was racking my brains trying to figure out just what my kiddos would do on the last day of school.  I read my kiddos Sideways Stories From Wayside School earlier in the year and planned to show the Nickelodeon cartoon movie while I was passing out Student Council awards at the big kids' awards ceremony, but that was about it.  

So I did what I did pre blogging/Pinterest,  I searched my End of the Year files, both paper and electronic, for what I've done with my classes in the pass.  Lucky for me that I did, because I found one of my favorite last day of school/end of the year activities!

I have my kiddos write down five facts about themselves, and then I shuffle the papers around, and I read the kiddos clues aloud, one student at time. Each student has a copy of my class list and the recording sheet and they write down who they think the clues describe.  Once all the clues have been read, then I start with the first page of clues and reread them, and then have the students share who they thought the clues described and reveal which student wrote the clues.  
 
My kiddos always LOVE this.  I have them put up privacy shields and everything when I read the clues and they are such attentive listeners, you could hear a pin drop during this activity! Plus it's always a hoot to see how my students describe themselves and their reactions when they the mystery student is revealed! 

Some years I offer a prize for the student who guesses the most friends correctly, and some years I don't.  Prize or not, my kiddos LOVE this activity, and I hope yours do too.

Don't forget my School's Out for the Summer Sale at my Teacher's Pay Teachers and Teacher's Notebook stores is going on through Saturday!
 Have a great weekend! :)

  1. That's a great idea. I think my first graders could easily handle this. Thanks!
