Oh, Twitter. You’re so useful for teachers. You connect educators so that they can share tools, tips and tricks, offer insight, and support one another. You bring your sexy social media-ness into the classroom to keep kids interested in what they’re learning when they think they’re actually (sort of) having fun instead.  That said, there …

10 great activities to break the ice with your students

10 great activities to break the ice with your students | elearning | Scoop.it
Starting the school year or walking into a new room every day as a
substitute can become pretty draining and confronting for both teachers and
students.

Luckily, there are things you can do to break the ice and make the kids
feel a lot more enthused and comfortable about learning.  Simply spend 10
to 15 minutes trying a couple of these activities listed below to help
break that awkward tension.

Thanks to Sharon Atkins of Missouri sending these ideas through to us.

These are a few of my favorite things.

Pass around a sheet of paper and some pens. Ask the students to write their
name and their favorite TV shows (you can come up with your own topic for
favorite things). Collect the papers and pens. Begin reading the answers,
but have the class guess who wrote the response.

Birthday Lineup.

Call out any month of the year and have all students born in that month
come up to the front of the room. It is up to the students to decide who
stands first, second, etc., so they are standing from the first day of the
month to the last day of the month. Now call out another month (don't call
the months in order), and have those students try to position themselves
correctly by day and by where they should stand as an entire month. This is
a great way to get kids working together and knowing each other. Once all
of the kids have lined up, test them to see if they are correct.

 The Snowball Activity.

Have students write three things about themselves on a piece of paper. Then
have them crumble up the paper to resemble a snowball. Let the students
have a snowball fight for about one minute. Now everyone grabs one of the
snowballs and has to try and find the person who wrote on it. Once they
find their partner, they have to bring that person up in front of the class
and explain what they learned about their new friend with the three facts
written on the piece of paper.

 The Observation Game.

Line up the students in two lines facing each other. If there is an odd
number of students, you can play the game, too. Give students 30 seconds to
look each other over really good, paying attention to all details about
their partner. The students in one line now turn facing the other way while
the other line of students changes something about themselves. For example,
a girl might take off a hair bow, or a boy might un-tuck his shirt. When
the kids in the first line turn back around, they have to guess what their
partner changed. Now switch and let the first line make the change and the
second line guess the difference.

Icebreaker Pictionary.

Have the students draw pictures about what they like to do, what their
favorite foods are, and what is their favorite subject in school. Have each
student come up and show their pictures to the class. See if the students
can guess what each student drew that tells a little bit about themselves.
For instance, if a student draws a yellow M, can anyone guess that she
likes McDonalds?

 Show and Tell.

Don't forget about this old time favorite part of class. Instruct students
to bring in something that they cherish, or just want to share with the
class. Give each student a turn to come up and tell about the item that
they brought in. This way the class will get to know each other and
something that makes each student happy.

Self-Portrait.

Have your students draw themselves. After they have done this, collect the
papers and hang them up for the whole class to see. Now have students try
to guess who the artists was for each picture.

 Letter Writing.

At the beginning of the year, write a short letter about yourself as the
teacher. Tell the students where you live, what your hobbies are, and if
you have any children, pets, etc. Hand out your letter to each student in
your class and ask them to write you back with similar information about
themselves.

The Mingle Game.

Give each student an index card. Have them write a question that they would
like to ask the other students in the class. Examples might include, "What
is your favorite song?" or "What is your favorite sport?" Next, have the
students get up and walk around the room. When you say, "stop," students
have to stand beside the person closest to them and ask the question that
is on their own card. Both students have to answer the questions. Now have
them mingle again and meet a new person.

The "What Am I?" Game.

Have the students get into a circle. Give each student a post-it note. Have
each person write a noun on the post-it note. Then stick the post-it on the
forehead of the person standing to right of them with the noun showing. Now
have student take a turn to ask the group a "yes/no" question that will
help them guess the noun on their forehead. If they do not guess correctly,
the person on their right gets to ask a question. Keep going until all of
the noun have been guessed, or your time limit has expired.
