On the First Day of School! Just an idea :)

There is a giveaway going on at Mrs. Dwyer's A+ Firsties! and one of the things she asked was what types of things you do each year on the first day back to school. So, I thought I'd share something I do each year on the first day!

If you have something you do EVERY YEAR, you can link up with Teaching Joys to share! :)
At the beginning of each year I ALWAYS give my students a "POP QUIZ"! They think it's fun because they are in FIRST Grade and think of "POP QUIZZES" as a "big kid" thing. It's not your normal pop quiz though....

I have a list of 10 or 15 things about me (some true, some false).
I read each statement on the page to them, and they have to decide if it's true or false. It's a great way for the new class to learn a bit about me, and it's always FULL OF LAUGHS! :)

Here are the things I am putting on THIS YEAR's Pop Quiz. See if you can figure out the TRUE and FALSE :)

1. Mrs. Cote is taller than her husband.
2. Mrs. Cote flew on a plane to Brazil all by herself when she was 16.
3. Mrs. Cote has a pet snake.
4. When she was a baby, Mrs. Cote broke her mother's nose.
5. Mrs. Cote's favorite color is red.
6. Mrs. Cote likes to watch baseball.
7. Mrs. Cote bites her nails.
8. One day, Mrs. Cote would love to visit Greece.
9. Mrs. Cote's favorite candy is Skittles.
10. Mrs. Cote likes to listen to Justin Beiber songs.

What do you think??? How well do you think you know me??

Wanna know the answers???

1. TRUE ---I'm about 1/2 an inch taller than my hubby. :) I wore ballet slippers at our wedding.

6. FALSE--I CANNOT stand watching baseball....WAY TOO slow paced for this ADD girl! lol
