Idea for starting the first day of school

Start with the Dan Wise “sit by day of the month you were born” game

Everyone has an envelope taped to the bottom of their seat. Inside is a sentence from chapter one of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. Each envelope also has instructions for the concentric circles.

For homework, an open ended write/draw/record yourself assignment to introduce themselves to me and the class the way Junior introduces himself.
