Sentence Circle Ice Breaker Game for Back to School

Language Arts and Ice Breakers Combine for Back to School Fun

By

Sneak a little bit of academics into the first day of school with this Ice Breaker that does double duty at language practice. Your students will enjoy working as a team as they play with language together.

Sentence Circles - Split your students into groups of 5. Give each group a piece of sentence strip paper and a pencil. On your signal, the first person in the group writes one word on the strip and then passes it to the left. The second person then writes the second word of the burgeoning sentence. The writing continues in this pattern around the circle - with no talking!

When the sentences are complete, the students share their creations with the class. Do this a few times and have them notice how their collective sentences improve each time around.
