FREE MISC. LESSON – “First Week of School {Getting to Know You Homework Sheets}”

by Green Grubs

1st – 4th Grade



These fantastic ‘first week of school homework sheets’ are perfect for getting to know your new class and their families a little better!

I have never failed to be amazed at the amount of new information I learn from these sheets – it’s always interesting to compare the child’s sheet, with their parents and also their previous teacher’s reports. This pack contains:

• STUDENT SHEET (1 page) with sections to complete about their family, pets, favorite foods, games and sports; how confident they feel about different subject areas; what they like to do when they’re not at school + things they find tricky at school.

• CAREGIVER SHEET (2 pages) with sections to complete about their child’s strengths and weaknesses; skills they have that could be utilized within the classroom; any cultural or religious beliefs the teacher should be aware of; languages spoken at home; passions and talents their child has outside of school; health issues + more.

** Please note that this pack contains duplicate pages with alternate spellings for: favorite/favourite, organizing/organising, humor/humour & utilizing/utilising!**
