I give each child a playing card as they enter the classroom. The students must match their cards with laminated hints that I tape to the desks. The hints are clues to the cards such as H-4 (four of hearts), S-8 (eight of spades), D-9, and C-10. The children must use their critical thinking skills to figure out the clues and find their seats. I also assign seats by handing out pictures of the presidents and they must match the faces to the names on the desks. These fun activities help my students discover new things each day.
