Get to Know You Doodle

Did you know I cohost a video podcast called Doodle and Chat with Friends? No, well head on over to Youtube and subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss the fun! Did you know that each month, Carrie Baughcum and I release a Doodle and Chat newsletter with an idea for the classroom and upcoming guests? No!?! Well sign up for the newsletter so you don’t miss out!

In the episode linked below, Carrie and I doodled our name and the turned them into characters.

Well… Carrie turned this idea into a welcome activity for her classroom. And I loved the idea so much, I’m doing the same thing. Now, Carrie has middle school special education kiddos and I have high school Juniors and Seniors in math so our set-up looked a little different. But we can both do this activity, modifying it to fit our students.

Carrie’s activity

I’m going to ask each class if they would prefer to choose from the prompts OR we can do a bowl that knows situation in the classroom and draw out a prompt. Either way, I think this is going to be fun for the first day of school when some of my students don’t have their laptops yet.

If you use this idea, tag me (@MandiTolenEDU), Carrie (@carrie_baughcum) and #DoodleAndChat on Twitter, Instagram, or TikTok. We would love see what you do!
