Author: Rosalie Roy This is also great for first day activities: TEACHER'S NOTE: I also use a Pringles can in my sixth grade, but I only use one. 1) I have the kids write a letter to themselves about how they feel being in sixth (PUT YOUR GRADE LEVEL HERE) grade, what they think they will be doing during the year, what their expectations for the year are, who their "best" friends will be, what they would like me to do during the year (how I can best help them), what the most important thing they will learn during the year. And anything else that comes to mind when I am writing it out on a transparency for them. 2) I put them in a ziplock bag and put them in the Pringles can to be opened the last week of school and reread by the students. They really enjoy this -- particularly knowing they will be able to open the "time capsule" at the end of the year. It is a great activity for them to begin the year with. It's fun.
