This is a FAN-TAS-TIC idea!!! I am planning on stealing this. Since I am on my 4th week...I am adding procedure statments for review :)

Very cute! I LOVE IT!

I have this end of the year test that I am all serious and kind of mean about. I make them move desks, and have a sharp pencil, and tell them they need to go to the bathroom now because they can't get up during the test.

It has a few trick questions like, "What year was the war of 1812?", etc. and then at about number 6 it starts having them take their shoes off, poke holes in their tests, hop on one foot... It is hilarious!

Thank for sharing!

I LOVE this idea! I always have a hard time with ice breakers and this one is so cute and it's a great way to get the students to know u! Awesome.. Thanks for sharing... I'm a new follower :)

Your stuff is just so incredibly adorable and it's so weird to me how alike our minds work sometimes! I do the same exact thing with my kiddos at the end of the first week! I adore it and always end the week with hearty, much-needed laughter! (Unrelated side not: I'm also a vegeterian (vegan actually)!) So yeah--you're awesome. Stay that way. :D

Very fun!! Can't wait to try it. I have done a similar thing with a "funny" test that sees who can follow directions. Number 1 says to read the whole test before doing anything, and the proceeds to give them all sorts of crazy tasks. When they get to the last question it says "Now that you have read the whole test through just write your name on the top and sit quietly" Gets them every time!!!

I LOVE THIS! I can't believe the ideas you both come up with! I can see why it's such a hit with the kids :) Thanks for sharing and a huge thanks for the guest blogging!!! :)

Very cute idea - I am sure the kids loved it.
I have just finished reading "Rocking Reading Workshop" which I downloaded from TpT. I am certainly going to use lots of your ideas - especially the glove idea.
I plan to do a blog post on it in the next week or two - and will obviously link all credit back to you.
Well done and keep those ideas coming. And thank you for sharing them.

This is such a good idea!! I do so many ice breakers and get to know you activities for the students, but they never really get to know anything about me.

We're already too far into our year to do it as a beginning of the year activity, but I might try to find a way to incorporate it into something later on. It's such a good idea!

Target makes a small fortune from me too...what is it about that place!!

I do this but never thought to do a T/F! Excellent!!!!

I've always seen this but I never have done it! I should try it out! I'm sure it would be a ton of fun!
