    needing some help with a project....

    Advertisements
    for a class i am taking i need to come up with and introductory activity for a classroom of 1st graders.
    it needs to be around 15 minute slong where i can interact with the students and i learn about them as well as them learning about me.

    any ideas?
    all would be greatly appreciated.

    a ball toss and who ever catches it has to say their name and fav...(anything food, candy.) They toss it back to you and have to tell them?
    I am not very good at this. Just trying to help as much as I can.

    We did this one at work as part of a morale booster.

    First everyone needs to get up and stand in a circle. Then you explain that you are going to do a name game. Start with yourself and be the example. You say your name and then create a gesture to describe something you like or feel (we described how we felt but for 1st graders you could do their favorite sport, animal, etc.) My example would be "Hi! my name is Jessie and I love volleyball," while saying volleyball I would use my hands to show that I am serving the ball. Once you show the example you move to the next person and they begin by saying your name and then they say your "sport" and do your sign, then they introduce themselves and create their own gesture. (Example for 2nd person: Your name is Jessie and you love volleyball-making sign as they say it- My name is Justin and I love soccer-making a sign by kicking a pretend ball). Do this until you have gone around the whole circle and everyone has created a gesture. Then for fun, since you went first and had it easy, you get to go around and try and remember everyone's name and gesture. We had a blast as adults and spent most of the time laughing but we learned everyone's name and found out something about them in the process!! Good luck with the 1st graders and I hope you have tons of fun!!!
