When I passed out the test and they realized that it was a test about ME their teacher, their nerves were eased.
I honestly don't know where I saw this idea, but it is GREAT! The kids LOVED this and it was a fun way for them to get to know me.
I read them all the questions and had them circle their answers. Then we went over it. I would have them raise their hands to show which answers they thought were right. I had them get our a crayon and circle the right answers so they could see how many they got right. I gave a prize to the student with the highest score.
Side note: Six weeks after this quiz, I was absent for the day and had the kids guess where I was. One student guessed that I was at the pet store getting a cat because I had never had a cat, but I did already have a dog and a turtle and a bunny. If you notice number five on the test that is the only time I gave them that information all year!
