Smartboard - First Days

What are some ways you use the SmartBoard (or other interactive whiteboard) during the first few days of school? I'm trying to pull together some get to know you activities, routines/procedures, games, etc. and would love some ideas? One thing I came up with is a venn diagram with student names with brothers/sisters to see what we have in common.

P.S. I know I could post this on the SmartBoard page, but it doesn't seem like it gets a lot of traffic.

I put an interactive die on a page and then list something for the students to share about themselves next to a number. Like 1 = favorite subject 2 = something fun they did this summer. Then I have them come up and touch the die and they have to share whatever is next to the number they rolled.

I also practice procedures like morning routine using one of the lesson activity toolkit tools that allows you to order events. (I can't remember the name of it.)

a promethean board, but since I have my kiddos use the board a lot I want them to become familiar with the feel of the pen.

I usually have them do simple activities during the first week including writing their names on the board, clicking and dragging objects (this could be an attendance activitiy), coloring and using the eraser, adjusting the width and color of the pen.

Numbers

I put a bunch of numbers on the board that correspond with statements about me. Examples:
  • number of days old Mrs. C is
  • number of years I've been teaching
  • number of pictures I took this summer
  • number of miles on my odometer
  • number of miles I lived from my elementary school
  • number of miles I lived from high school
Then students come up and erase the hidden answers next to the statement. It gives me an idea of student number sense for each child.

I like the numbers! I'll have to try that one. Maybe then they could do a "numbers about me" thing as an early math lesson. Too young for 3rd grade?

That's the grade level I have done it with in the past!
