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.
