School can be very frightening for children, especially if they struggle with making friends, are learning to speak a new language, or are new to a school or class. Young learners are still developing social skills and for them to succeed, we need to provide opportunities for them to build relationships with their peers. In this presentation, Shelly Terrell will show you fun icebreakers that help kids bond and work effectively in teams and pairs whether they are meeting new friends or learning a new language.

Great icebreakers for younger kids. There are even a couple I think could work for middle and high school. Thank you for another awesome presentation!

I saw great ideas for Kindergarten. I liked the Me Museum and rolling the ball with their names. I also like the idea of students bringing a toy.....I will use this as a prompt to get them to write.
