Never Stress About the First Day of School Again!

The first day of school is the most important and the busiest. It’s also the hardest because you don’t know your students yet. You don’t know what they like and what their interests are. Heck, you don’t even know their names! And yet, it’s your job to walk into a room full of strangers and turn it into a community.

50 Activities for the First Day of School is a collection of fun and engaging activities that will help you learn students’ names, build rapport, assess their knowledge, introduce language, and establish the class rules!

In this book, you’ll find:

• Classic icebreakers and name games
• Fun ways to start teaching on the first day
• New innovative activities to build rapport
• Practical ideas to set the rules from day one
• Engaging ways to introduce the course right away
• Effective methods of assessing your students’ language level


All of these activities are all classroom-tested and teacher-approved. And all are presented with clear instructions and ideas to adapt or vary the activities to your students, your teaching style and your classroom.

Your students will walk away having had a fun first class and you will walk away ready to tackle the rest of the term.

Visit the First Day of School site for more information, free downloadable worksheets and other resources to make your first day of school stress-free.
