First Week of School - Getting To Know You

I feel like I've been neglecting my blog lately but work has just been very overwhelming. The first week of school is often hectic and busy but this year, I am taking on the role of being a team leader which as exciting as it is, gives me greater responsibility = greater workload. So I have been adjusting to this role and getting settled into routines. I promise to post more regularly soon!

This post is a simple one based on an activity we used in our first week of school. Our school merged two campuses together this week and it was crucial that we assisted the students in getting to know each other. One of the easiest ways of doing this is through a "Get to Know You BINGO". I absolutely love this activity and have used it in other school years also. 

Here is the worksheet that I created with a teammate. Essentially, students need to go around the room and place the name of a classmate in one of the boxes. They can only use a name once (no repeats). The first student to finish wins. Enjoy!


  1. Congratulations Steph, you would be an awesome team leader.... Great minds think alike, I just did some guilty blogging tonight.... My has been very much negleted lately too.

    Miss you lots xx

    1. Thanks Elyse! It has been a tough week but we are getting there. Hope you are doing well, I'd love to hear about your new school! xx

  2. I saw your blog post - and did a double-take. It is so crazy to think of you just starting off a school year while us in the states are halfway through a year :)

    I love the BINGO activity - definitely storing it away for September :)

    Thanks for sharing!

    Joy in the Journey

  3. It is very different than in North America! I had a bit of getting used to when I first moved here too. Please use the activity in September!
