Start the school year movin' and sharin' with this fun icebreaker activity.
Back to School Icebreakers on Deck!
Go back to school with our “Sing and Share” icebreaker activity – the perfect way to kick off the school year and get to know your students! This fun and interactive activity combine the joy of singing and movement with a meaningful discussion that helps students connect with their classmates.
With the “Sing and Share” activity, students will start by standing in pairs and singing along to the tune of “Baa Baa Black Sheep” with altered words that encourage them to move and interact with their partners. After the song, students will sit with their partners and use our discussion prompt cards to engage in meaningful conversation. The goal is for each pair to find two things they both agree on, fostering a sense of understanding and connection between students.
Once every pair has found two common answers, students will stand and find a new partner, and the whole process will be repeated. This fun and engaging activity not only promotes teamwork and collaboration but also helps students feel more comfortable and confident in the classroom.
