Learning About Each Other

Found In: back to school; building trust & community; icebreakers; learning students' names

On the first day of school, I want to learn the children's names. At the first student's desk, I extend my hand, introduce myself and tell the class one of my favorite activities, sports, games, etc. The student must then tell me his/her name and an interesting personal fact. I then go on the next student and introduce myself again but give a new statement about myself. I repeat the statement and then go back and repeat the first student's name and statement. I continue this practice until I have learned all the student's names. By the end of the first day, they know everything about their teacher and all of us know something about each other.
