Not just a great activity for the beginning of the year or term, but a great way to teach Venn Diagrams. This worksheet is a brilliant start of the year or term activity when you need to get the children engaged in dialogue with others outside of their immediate friendship group. Children LOVE to share information about themselves, as well as find common and own interests. This worksheet does all that, as well as making for a great display to have everyone really get to know each other. A nice easy way to teach Venn Diagrams too! Only $1.

First week back to school and getting to know you, doesn’t need to be boring…Who went roller skating? Who went camping? We can do MUCH better than that!

A much better alternative to the usual people hunt.

OZClassroom Hacks is about anything that makes life easy in the classroom. Have you ever noticed that some staff seem to look a lot less stressed than others? That’s usually because they have the benefit of a few years under their belt and access to good range of resources. They are the one’s who know not to try and reinvent the wheel, but to use what’s already there.
This activity works great with viewing the movie Inside Out, and lends its hand to opeing some amazing dialogue about feelings and who we really are.
