A Warmer and a Filler

As the end of the month is close, I started getting more links for the blog carnival. However, there are loads of ideas with friends who hasn’t started blogging yet. Emine Bülür is one of them and I’m so happy that she wanted to contribute to the carnival with an activity.

 

Here is a warmer & filler activity:
 
Give them a piece of paper on which they can write their names.

I collect all the names in a box and ask them to pick a name.

Later, they write two questions for the student whose name written on the back of the paper.

Finally, they can share what they have leaned about their friends with the rest of the class.
 
It works well especially at times when student need to introduce themselves to a new class. As we use a modular system at our school, they change classes every quarter so the activity helps me a lot in this respect.
