One of my first day ice breakers is a one colored plastic ball that you can find at any major retail store for a couple of dollars. With a black sharpie I divided the ball into sections and in each section I write a question in it. We all sit in a circle and gentle roll the ball to a person and that person can pick a question to answer. The kids love it and it lets me have some insight on how the class dynamics may be in the future:) Oh yea, I teach the wonderful grade of second.
