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.

Good information!
I am going to try mingle after spring break. They can share something they did over break with others. The 30 seconds is quick and they can share the same idea each time. Some can draw, some can have a sentence starter, others can share sentences.

Really liked the info in this Webinar. I will check out the 'Mouth Off Lite' and also liked the saying, "They may forget what you say but they will never forget how you make them feel."
Great, very cool ice breakers!

I found lots of ideas and how easy at any grade level to do.
Discussed/shared the benefits of doing ice breakers with students and different ways of doing them.
