It's Time to Teach!

Your ESL students whether returning or new,  online or in class will be feeling the September butterflies of "Back to School".  Make it easier for yourself and for your students by introducing a few ice breaker games and activities on the first day of class in order to create a comfortable and warm classroom environment.

Note: You may want to begin by having students ask YOU questions instead of volunteering information. It's a great time to also review question making too!

Here's a list of some sites offering first few day ideas (you might need to modify if online) and worksheets! 

Whether you're teaching online or in class, all the best for an exciting, successful and most importantly, a rewarding school year!
