but I have the advantage of having prior relationships with my students-- so I am still searching for the perfect opening activities.

That said, the first days are spent re-establishing those bonds and catching up while still setting expectations.

They have to trust you enough to speak to you and share their lives and recognize you as the authority.

We will do some interest inventories-- Some in general/life based and some academic. Let them write their own answers (as opposed to checklists, google forms, etc.) and you will get a basic writing sample, handwriting sample, articulation clues, and look at spelling skills and more. You will see who talks the most, attention seekers, fringe kids, friendless kids, etc.
