Hi! I teach 2nd Grade in an international school here in Jakarta. LOVE LOVE LOVE your ideas. This time I am thinking of trying out an idea I found online. Each child gets a paper cut out of a puzzle piece and they write their name, favourite subject, food, friend, draw a picture of themselves etc etc. We then sit together in a circle and put the pieces together on a large piece of paper. They kids learn that we are all different but we all perfectly fit together as one team. I am really thankful to all the wonderful teachers who share their ideas online. Cheers!
