Default Re: Ice breakers - first class

Thanks for sharing your ideas! Here's one that I always use..

I like to use a small sponge ball and place the students into a circle, where they have to throw a ball to another student while saying, "What's your name?" When the person has caught the ball and answered, "My name is xxx. What's your name?" they then have to throw the ball to another student and the process is repeated.

Once they get to know each other you can speed it up, introduce two balls or have them say, "My name is XXX, her name is xxx. What's your name?" You can vary it as much as you want and all your students will be happy.
