It’s that time of year again!! Schools are starting over the next few days.
What do you do to get to know your class?
Here are some fun ideas I use in therapy:
- A game of Two Truths and a Lie. Everyone has to come up with two things about themselves, and one lie. Everyone else has to guess which one is the lie!
- A soccer ball with questions on it. You pass/throw/kick the ball and have to ask the question your hand lands on when you pick it up/catch it. Some questions we have on our ball are: if you were invisible for a day, what would you do? if you could have any superpower, what would it be? when is the last time you laughed?
- Human Scavenger Hunt. Everyone gets a ‘bingo card’ with a set of descriptors, they have to find someone that matches the description. The first person to fill out the card is the winner. Some descriptors may include: someone who is the oldest child; someone with a sister; someone with a pet fish; someone who has been to New Zealand.
- Make a Puzzle. I used to buy person shaped jigsaws that could be decorated. Each child would have to write or draw something about themselves (a fact, hobby or something they love) on each puzzle piece.
Let me know what other ideas you have! And good luck at the start of the year.
