Many Primaries have a breakfast at the first of the year to introduce the children to their new teachers.  Here are some of your ideas....  Click here if you'd like to e-mail me your idea.

 My Eternal Family Quarterly Activity by Laura Nicholls

2013 Meet your teacher breakfast by Jen Card

 
Sandals like Jesus

 Get-to-know you Bingo by Pauline Alger (in English and Spanish)

 A red carpet event by Julie Bassett

 We send out invites that have clues for the child's teacher (3 interested tidbits about them received by the teacher) so they can try and guess who it is. The day of the breakfast they all meet in the Relief Society room and fill out a spotlight sheet for the year. Then we move to the cultural hall for a yummy breakfast of bacon, eggs, pancakes, hashbrowns, fruit, and milk prepared by our bishopric. The bishopric then joins the children and they get to say a big thank you.  (We also follow up with a thank you card signed by each child). After breakfast, the Senior classes go their classrooms and the Junior classes go to the Primary Room. The theme is introduced in the primary room and this year in the individual classes the teachers introduced themselves using a get to know you bag. They also created a "class flag" in their classes that we will laminate and decorate the primary room with. Then the primarys switch places. This is our favorite activity of the year.

 M&M Game and Primary Breakfast by Marci and Joni

 We have had a Meet Your Teacher Picnic Lunch the last few years! It is a fun way to start off the year, and delightful way to introduce the teachers and new students! We start with a brief message and song, then we divide into Jr/Sr. Primary, One group plays relay races (with the teachers running too) in the gym, while the other group is in their new class room getting to know each other. At the end, we go by class into the kitchen, while each child gets to put their lunch into their bag (pre-assembled into baggies) and then we sit on blankets (as a class) with our teachers and munch our lunch! We actually do this early 9:30 to 11:00. We love it!  (Idea by Kim Wilson / ga01042009)

 The children meet with their new teacher, walk through their new classrooms and decide on a class name and class rules which they write on a poster board. One of our classes this year was "The Lion's Den" and the teacher has commented more than once on how nice it is to be able to pull out her poster (it's half of a regular size poster board) and remind the children of the rules that they themselves established. (Idea by Melissa)

 It could be fun to get spotlight kinds of information on all the children, and then put that into a puzzle for each class using www.puzzlemaker.com - Fun idea! (Idea by Jamie)

 Meet Your Teacher Breakfast by Julie Van der Toolen

 We had the children sit with their teacher to eat. Then as a class they played board games which the presidency and teachers all helped bring. We have a big Primary and wanted to keep it simple, so we just had fruit, donuts, and juice boxes. It went over really well and we are planning to do it again.  (Idea by Heather Shelton)

 We have been doing this activity for a number of years now and everyone always enjoys it.  We plan an hour and a half and do the following:  

- Everyone eats a small breakfast of muffins (we as a presidency all make 3 dozen each), juice, milk and fruit
- All the children go to their new classrooms with their new teachers and spend about 20 minutes participating in a get-to-know you game the teachers have prepared.
- Everyone comes back together and we have some kind of group game and/or guess who this is (we have the teachers and our presidency each write a little something about themselves that no one else would know and the children have to try and guess)
- The end is always something related to the new theme for the year, after which we have a closing prayer.  We have the activity from 9-10:30, which works out good.  All the tables are set with the class names on them, so the children and teachers know where to go.  I think it's important for the children to get-to-know the teachers outside of the classroom and this is a good opportunity to do so. (Idea by Kathryn Hardy)

 Meet your teacher brunch by Lynda Whitlock  

 Meet your teacher PJ's Party by Harvest Hills 8th Ward

 Something we did a couple of years ago to introduce the children to their new teachers was to have all the primary teachers bring picture of themselves from when they were little (no older than 2 years old, or it becomes too obvious). The children loved guessing which teacher belonged to which picture. We just put all the pictures on a poster board with a number under each one. Then we would ask the children, "Which teacher is number 8?" And so on.  (Idea by Becky Westerberg)

 When we did this, we had each teacher bring a pillowcase of things that were hers and described what she liked etc. The classes each set at assigned tables and drew items out of the bag as they learned about their teacher, We did this last year and since the theme was what it was, she also shared her favorite scripture story. We as a presidency printed out a picture of a open book and the kids drew there favorite scripture story in it. We then laminated them and hung them around the room for the children to reflect on through the year. (Idea by Rochelle Miller)
