Getting to Know You Icebreakers
This resource pack contains everything you need to help break the ice with your students. This would be ideal for any new class whether they are just new to you or even new to each other! Although it is great for the start of the academic year, many of us deal with casual admissions and students who join late in the year. These resources will be great for helping you get to know them better and for them to integrate into the group.
You will find physical activities to get them up and about, moving and talking to one another and finding things in common, helping the group to improve their social skills in talking, bonding and making new friends.

All About Me Social Media Profile Templates
The use of social media is very much a part of students’ lives in this day and age. Use this to your advantage in your lessons at the beginning of the year by encouraging them to tell you and their peers all about themselves using a format they love and are familiar with: social media!
In this pack you will find ‘about me’ templates for Facebook, Instagram and Twitter! You can give all 3 for your students to complete as they each cover different elements, or you can pick and choose which they complete: the choice is yours, or theirs.
You can use these to learn more about your students at the beginning of the year. It is also helpful for other students to read these and learn more about each other and find common interests too.
After each template you will find a guide sheet with a few helpful hints on how to complete them – use this for your own instructions or show the students, it’s up to you.
So get yourself fully prepared with activities to settle your students in at the beginning of the year!
