Community Level 2 – Familiar

Materials: None

One at a time, students greet the group by saying “Hi, I’m (action + name).” The action must start with the same letter as the student’s name. An example would be, “Hi, I’m Jumping Judy.” The student says her name and does the action at the same time. The class responds with “Good Morning Jumping Judy,” including the action. 

Plan for Success: Before the greeting, students decide what action they will match with their names. 

Variations: Students can add both an adjective and an action to their greeting. Use names, adjectives, or actions in a writing activity for that day.
