As the back-to-school season approaches, teachers everywhere are gearing up to welcome their students back into the classroom. It's a time of fresh beginnings, new friendships, and the perfect opportunity to set the tone for an exciting year of learning. To help you start the school year off on the right foot, we've curated a list of 10 free and fun back-to-school activity ideas that will engage and captivate your students from day one.
Icebreakers are a great way to helps kids feel relaxed in stressful situations, such as at the beginning of a new school year where they find themselves with a different teacher, peers, and classroom.
Below, I've collected five fun icebreakers that you could use during the first week back at school. I've chosen ones that also help particularly shy students feel comfortable too. Some icebreakers can be daunting for some kids, and I think some activities create more anxiety for them instead of comfort (which is the overall goal of these activities).
