Just made this Question ball. While in a circle, Have students say the name of the person he/she is throwing to (to practice learning names). The person who catches it says their name again and answers whatever question their right thumb lands on.
What a great positive group activity! Have one person sit on a chair in front of a white board while the others wrote a positive phrase about them. Take a picture to give to each person. A very creative and positive group activity.
Listening - Even though this says listening game for adults, I think it would be great for the elementary classroom as well. It gives students the opportunity to strengthen listening skills as well as cooperation skills, plus it would be fun!
If you’re teaching number bonds and would love a break from worksheets, these engaging, hands-on activities are a must. Solve missing addends with playdough, set up a fun math center with write and wipe cards… there are so many possibilities!
