At the beginning of the year we like to have a ‘Meet the Teacher’ breakfast for all the Primary children and teachers. This is a great time for the children to see who their teachers will be for the new year, and be able to get to know them a little bit.
We typically like to have it the first Saturday in January, so the children will know who there teacher is the next day. But it’s sometimes difficult to have it then because of the holidays and everyone being out of town.
Last year we decided to do a Donuts & Pj’s theme. We invited all the children AND teachers to come to the breakfast in their PJ’s and join us for a yummy breakfast of donuts, fruit, and milk/O.J.
We didn’t have many children there, but those that came had a great time. And honestly…what kid doesn’t love donuts!?! I’m not a ‘kid’ anymore, but I still love me a donut. 🙂 Since the new year is right around the corner, I decided to share fun invite that you could use for your very own “Donuts & Pj’s Breakfast” this year. Here’s a little peek at what it looks like.
We usually set-up our Meet the Teacher breakfast in the cultural hall. There is a table for each class with a sign that has the teacher’s name on it, and a class list. As the children come in, we ask them to find their class and have a seat. One year we had a fun place mat with word finds and other puzzles. The children worked on that as we waited for everyone to arrive.
We began with breakfast, YUM, and then we split into classes. During this time the children and teachers would go down to the classroom that they would be in during the upcoming year. The teachers needed to have a short 15-30 minute game, lesson, presentation, etc. planned for the breakfast. After the 15 minute class time, we gathered back together in the cultural hall and played a few group Get-to-Know you games. You could play a game focused on the teachers and Primary Presidency like 2 truths and a lie or where they have to guess which fact goes with which teacher, etc.
You could also play some fun Minute To Win It games. Whatever you choose…make sure it’s fun. 🙂
