In my opinion, if it’s not fun, it’s not worth doing.
Fun (or FUNN) attracts student’s willing participation, it’s contagious, and it’s very hard to look cool when everyone else is enjoying themselves.
So, in the spirit of this universal programming philosophy, why not integrate one or more of the following ‘back-to-school’ activities into your curriculum? They are 100% fun, simple to present, and most importantly, will help you build a stronger sense of community in your classroom.
Back To School Community-Building Games (30 mins) Props: nil
Finding Nemo– rapid-fire, infectious & highly interactive game
The Story Game– hilarious story-telling game that involves every student
This is the final instalment of my five unique ‘back-to-school’ lesson plans to help you build and strengthen the relationships among the students of your classroom. You can view lessons 1, 2, 3 and 4 by clicking the links.
I hope they have brought lots of fun, laughter and sharing to you and your class.
