Perfect for back to school night! Kids and parents both love this activity. Kids create the quiz about themselves by filling in the blanks. Parents answer the questions without peeking. Fun and FREE

I think something similar would be a nice welcoming display to create before term starts. It will be nice for the children to see themselves on the wall on their first day.
Fun interactive math activity for the beginning of the school year. Students use multiplication and division equations to answer questions about themselves.
